Letting a Little Light In

Since the new year began I have been in a dark place.

My mood has swung between resentment, seething anger and self pity. Life has sometimes felt like it had it's noose around my neck and was slowly choking the breath out of me.

If I had blogged during this period it wouldn't have made very nice reading so I stayed away.

But, as most things go, moods lift and life moves on. So here I am letting a little light back in, trying to divest myself of the negative energy that has plagued me these past three months and learning to laugh again.

Hope you have had a better start to the year than I have?

Glad to read a post from you. Sorry to hear about the rough start. Sometimes life is like that, but eventually things start to look up. Glad to hear that things are getting better.

I cannot believe that three whole months have gone by already. Well, my year has started off really well - with a bang, so to speak. So, here's hoping that the rest of the year is not too shabby.

When I read your last post about XMAS presents I imediately thatall was not aligned in your universe. Glad to see that you are starting to come thorugh it. We all go through it at some point or the other. I recently posted the lyrics to Danicng in the Dark just to demonstrate how low I felt. It will be well.

Dear Pilgrimage to Self

I really do enjoy your blog and your writing style. I’m looking for African bloggers that currently also do live in Africa. If you can think of any and wouldn’t mind sending me an e-mail ( ) with their web-addresses, I’d be most thankful!

All the best
