Wherever this goes

Today's post title is inspired by The Fray's song "Wherever this goes" taken off their latest album Helios

The song goes something like this:
We could slow down
Waste away in this town
Standing on the sidewalk
Watching this parade
Or we could get out
Pack our suitcase right now
Find ourselves a bus stop,
Make our own way!

Cause it feels like I've been here forever
Afraid to beat my father, and afraid to leave him too
But it's my name I painted on the doorway
Tells me where I came from and what I gotta do!

Wherever this goes (goes), no matter how far (far)
Baby, you are the song that's written on my heart
Wherever we stand, wherever we fall
It don't matter at all, cause I will be forever yours
From this moment till the day the curtains close
Wherever this goes!

I attended the morning service at church today, and as I was making my way back home- there were these traffic cops and guides all around town. Some roads were blocked and when I took a good look around I noticed that there was a marathon taking place. How come I never knew of this? I mean seriously? To make it funnier still, I was not the only one- most people attending the second service had to use alternate routes because they would interrupt the marathon. I could not get over this- but on the bright side, look at what I bought:

I have 100 grams of coffee to consume this coming week.I have missed my coffee and I'm happy that I get to use my coffee-maker to brew some of my favorite drink and hopefully share it with Mom because I know she'll want some of it.

So, where is this going?
Writing.

I have come to learn that if I push myself just in the right direction I would get what I need. So, I am hoping to publish Currents: Fire by December this year- and looking into getting the print copies available for sale here in Kenya. It's a big deal for me and I am working on this because it's my initiative and no one can do it but me.

So, what is Currents about?

It's a story that follows the growth of a boy named Ustawi. He is born a Prince and raised to take after his Father in ruling their kingdom.

Why Currents?
People are not constant or definite. Circumstances can either change people for good or bad, and currents are dynamic. The story is a four-part series:
  • Fire
  • Water
  • Wind
  • Earth
In the first book "Currents: Fire" the story starts "Desire burns like fire, and so in the beginning was the desire for a legacy." The rest follow Ustawi as he faces challenges in living up to his father's legacy. It's a story about power, love, crime, family and most of all being able to stand up for what is right.

I have something great to look forward to and wherever this goes, all I can say is that I'm doing what I've set my mind and resources to and we shall see the outcome.
I hope you invest in a copy. Buy one- read it, love it, dislike it, and share the word. (I'll remind you of all this once it's out of course!)
