Taking a Breather

Hi, am Monicah, Monicah Wangari. I sound like Hannah, Hannah Baker. But on an entirely different concept here. Blessed beyond words to be a writer and to have you read or even skim through my writings. I and my blog thrive on honesty and personal life experiences. When I started the blog, my intentions were…

The Week End

Could be an artist’s name, a song theme, a hotel name, or simply time:  the end of every week. By default and in regard to the Holy Book (Bible), the week is a time for hustle. Then the seventh day which sometimes runs for three days (or more if you on vacay) is the week…

Being Erica

I like Erica. Maybe because her name ryhmes with my first name Monicah. Or because she is an equally imperfect human as I am and she shows that really well in the series Being Erica. How I stumbled upon it on YouTube is one thing I don’t remember but the bond we (Erica and I)…

Rock that Sweater

Make Up

Heavy topic this one. Have you ever thought why the name? Just google the word and see what comes up; the physical, mental, and moral character of a person, is one way to see it. Or the composition of anything. My definition for this article; To make up is to create something or cover up…

Dog Show

For a little over two hours while watching the quiet vast world, we lay by the train rail thinking about life. Admiring the sky above us, the sun smiling down on us. The very leafy vegetation complementing the sky and calming the atmosphere after heavy rains for the past two months. Thinking about why people…
