Zurikiki is a blog about memories. Zuri– what I intend to name my daughter, and Kiki, that hero- boy who could take on our childhood bully, Tony, anytime and win.
Zurikiki is a journey of self-discovery. A journey of redemption and healing from past hurts. A journey of flaws and imperfections from which something pure occasionally emanates from. A journey of laughter and tears.
Zurikiki is about baring the soul and experiencing with art; words, notes, etc. while unfettered to the demands of an unyielding editor.
Zurikiki is about answering to the urges of the inner child when everything was possible. Thus I can sing even though the music teacher said I was hopeless; I can draw even if I am a wreck in that department; and I can dance even though my bones creak like an old lorry going uphill.
Zurikiki is about Ibra, Shiku, Coast… places and people who have made me who I am today. It’s an appreciation of the beautiful land that we call Kenya for the opportunities and the stories she has bequeathed to me thus far.
Ultimately, Zurikiki is about freedom.
Critique, enjoy and share.
