Walking Through Time

This year had been full of surprises. From Brexit to the election of Trump to the continual gluttonous appetite of the world’s politicians. The world was gripped by the drama that was the US Presidential election, and as a feminist, I was really rooting for Hilary Clinton. But that was not her fate, she lost the race.

On a personal note, I’ve experienced nothing but blessings this year. I’ve also had my share of challenges, don’t we all? I’ve had dreams postponed but not denied, I’ve seen plans stalled but not destroyed. I’ve had manuscripts shelved but not forgotten. I’ve met new friends and learned some vital life lessons.


The great thing is, if you’re reading this, that means we’re still walking through time, our lights are not snuffed out yet, for that, we should be grateful. No matter what you may have gone through in 2016, as long as you’re still breathing, and walking, there is hope yet. Don’t give up!

On that note, I wish all my friends here in the United Kingdom and elsewhere in the world, may you have a wonderful and prosperous 2017!

Happy New Year!!!

Much love, always. 🙂

    Oooh manuscripts? A new book coming out from Seyi Sandra David? I look forward to that with the rubbing of hands.

    2016 was not a good year for celebrities. The kids also lost their maternal grandfather. He may have been their step-grandfather, but he treated them more his than their step-dad does. SO they were devastated when he went.

    He had suffered a stroke, several heart attacks and had cancer, so he is at peace now and free of pain. That gives them comfort.

    Have a splendid and brilliant 2017 my friend.

      I’m so sorry to read this my friend. I hope your kids would cherish his memory. I know how tough that can be, I still miss my dad terribly and it would definitely take time.
      Al, I apologise for my late reply, I’ve been ill for a while and had not been at work for almost a week (something I truly cherish)
      I hope to release a couple of short stories in a book format. It’s difficult juggling full-time work, family and writing hence my sporadic posts.
      I hope you would have a wonderful 2017 filled with love and laughter. My love and warm regards to your lovely family.

        I hope you are feeling much better now my friend.

        Losing a parent or grandparent is very hard. and takes a long time to get over. Although I have never lost a parent myself, I can’t say what losing the close family member is like.

        Their step-dad ignores them, and ignores his own kids leaving my two to babysit when they go down. Their step-grandad would do anything for them, and always had time for them. They accept that he is still with them, looking down on them and helping them in death as he did in life.

        I look forward to anything you release. I always enjoy your writing. And that twist at the end of Cydonia. That still gets me. There are twists, and then there is that. I’m going to have to read it again soon.

        Have a great week and beyond Seyi.

    Happy New Year my friend, I think this year will be a good year…just as soon as that tempting Christmas chocolate is finished off of course!

    I really liked the sentiment you shared: “Life is like walking through snow: every step shows.” I have to wonder what the coming year will look like? I’m afraid with our elected official, the snows will be pock-marked with molten blasts where there used to be pristine, unmarked territory. The virgin snows will no longer be untrammeled and full of potential. Snow angels will be replaced by demons of fire and everything on the path will burn and burn. (Sorry, we’re in a dark place on this side of the pond…as a result, analogies suffer.) Still, I liked your imagery even as I despair of the now and future world.

    • kirizar says:

      Ack. Would you please change ‘their’ to ‘there’. I know the difference. I’m just too stupid to catch it on the first read-through. Ugh.

    • Seyi sandra says:

      I know just what you meant by your comment. I stayed glued to my seat as I watched the election and was truly disturbed when Mr Trump won. Don’t despair my friend, hopefully, he won’t stay there forever. In the meantime, I’ll remember that great nation of yours in my prayers.
