Over the last couple of days, I have given the Uganda conversation a break(rhetoric about politics) and concentrated on worthier topics rather than existential needs. Of-course if you haven’t studied astronomy or taken interest in planets, you would be forgiven for taking our Earth for granted, but when you realise how planets orbit around the Sun, how for example Venus rotates so slowly that it takes longer to rotate on its axis than around the sun, a day in Venus is longer than a year on earth. Neptune hasn’t completed a single orbit since it was discovered in 1846. How the protective layer around earth enables survival against meteorites and asteroids miss the earth by just inches and degrees, The beauty and asymmetry of the Universe cannot help but show the beauty of the earth we live on.
The Galaxy aside,let me talk about Gelax and the person behind it, the sassy, beautiful Bolaji. I met her when I joined the Afrobloggers platform (this is far different from the Eunice and Austin story) . She read my life story and was happy that I was writing and encouraged me to send voicenotes and to wish her a new year. I have subsequently called her and she hears the words (this coming from a person with speech impairment is a plus. Today morning, I called her and she was so happy. I asked about Lagos and she heard me and replied, yeeyi. And now that I speak with the hand, I promise to give faith a fighting chance. Hope may be frail, but it never dies.
