Keep the sweetness of life!

I am basking in the words of Audre Lorde these days. In her short essay oh how she intended to live the rest of her life while battling liver cancer, she shared the following I will keep forever:

‘I want to live the rest of my life, however long or short, with as much sweetness as I can decently manage, loving all the people I love, and doing as much as I can of the work I still have to do.

I am going to write fire until it comes out of my ears, my eyes, my nose holes, everywhere.

Until it’s ever breathe I breathe. I’m going to go out like a fucking meteor!’

May we all live our lives with this kind of sweetness. I truly will starting with this seafood okro I ate that defies words.

The sweetness of seafood okro, from a local restaurant in Lagos is my keep for today.
