Hallo I shall be quick on this. For reasons beyond my control I failed to fulfill a pledge to the Afroblog community. I wanted to hide behind a book but the book loan didn’t come through on time. I sought another hide from another content creator to transcribe their work, the request for the permission to publish it is still to come. Here I am fulfilling this surprise honor that came with the new week
http://khananidaniella.wordpress.com/ Khanani Daniella thanks a million times. You made me start believing I can be noticed for whatever, I do.
Questions and Answers.
What is my favorite book and why?
House of Hunger by Dambudzo Marechera. As a first year student the book made me realize how wrong were my church mates in thinking I can be a Pastor of my then denomination, hahahahah. It’s loaded with beautiful filth humanity is or can be. It’s a portrayal of Zimbabwe, Africa and the world. It’s aesthetics for me is second to none. I can read it anytime whatever page the spirit leads me to.
What song do I currently have on repeat?
For quite sometime I wasn’t listening to music, I don’t know why.
Which season (Autumn, Spring, Summer or Winter) best describes you?
In the event of an emergency home evacuation, what is the first item you grab?
Yesterday I was telling a friend how I want to convert my mother’s metal kitchen unit into a safe haven for my slowly expanding real book library. I don’t know what you call soft copies of books for me they ain’t real. So for now I don’t want an emergency. If it happens for sometime I will make sure my library is safer even than me.
Which historical figure would you most like to meet and why?
They are few and many. I chose Dambudzo Marechera for the life he lived and the legacy he left not only to Zimbabwe but the wide jungle now being belittle by the term globe.
What makes a good blog?
Depth and originality, if the concepts exist anyway.
Back to the past or forward to the future?
I am allergic to short memory. Therefore I move across the three at any given time. After all the three are more than one. They are extremely entangled!
Your dream vacation.
Visiting at least a single African village each year and enjoy the closeness of the beauty that could have been.
The greatest movie of all time.
Not a believer of this notion of greatest of all time. In Shona they have a saying ‘Ramangwana harizikanwi‘ (of tomorrow is never known). What is all time? Hahahaha. Anyway I am not entirely a movie person but if it’s the series Queen Sono is numbered as a movie, it made me love it and watch it 3 times non-stop.
Wealth or health?
Your proudest moment.
Scratching my mind. But I feel proud when someone thinks I have done something valuable to them. Like this girl from my rural home who texted me yesternight telling me she wished me a happy father’s day (disregarding my disregard of the day) because in her own words “but honestly speaking I just felt like saying that to you cause you’re one of those people who make me feel good…‘

Awww you skipped a prompt for the award. I’m glad you got round to doing this. I love your responses. I’ll surely give House of Hunger a try.
And your books must be a treasure to you 😂😂 make them safer than you. I see you…
And quick one, why exactly don’t you like father’s day? 🥺
I remembered the miss as i was doing the other nomination piece. As of days I am influenced by Apostle Paul’s criticism of how we as humans become entangled on honouring days. So I am thinking if out of the 365 – the days allocated to fathers, mothers, women, African Child whose are the remaining days. I want womanhood, fatherhood, motherhood, childhood to be celebrated every day
Yes that’s very important…
Haha very philosophical but important.
I want to agree with you.. but I shall still celebrate them ☺️
