Feels like so long since I typed something sensible here, I guess I just been lacking Blog Mojo as they call it..But it's not even that it's me & my multi tasking I start to type a post & in da middle of it get to doing something else & by the time I come back here & the whole idea is gone & seem boring to even continue.
Moving on of late I have been wondering what is it with me & Unavailable jamaas, First it was the married guy( And plz stop looking at me like that) I honestly had no idea he was until I was deep into his shit, It was the most painful period in my dating life, Knowing you are in Love with someone's elses Wife & Father brought me really down, Then there was this other guy who was always away, Busy always, We lived in different towns anyway it never worked out....And now this LDR am in now, It just so frustrating coz although I love the jamaa but am no happy..
I sometimes just don't understand myself, What's with me & unavailable guys?..
Am just tired, I just want to stop dating, maybe then I wouldn't miss anyone or then be so lonely..
My friends say I bring these to myself, as in am a drama queen & I look for trouble, maybe they are right. But Is it possible to choose whom you fall in Love with? How is it possible to be happy in a LDR?
I have always Loved Pink, and when I first heard this song I fell in Love with it!

You took my hand, You showed me how
You promised me you'd be around
Uh huh
That's right, I took your words
And I believed, In everything
You said to me, Yeah huh
That's right

If someone said three years from now
You'd be long gone
I'd stand up and punch them out
Cause they're all wrong, I know better
Cause you said forever, And ever
Who knew

Remember when we were such fools
And so convinced and just too cool
Oh no, No no
I wish I could touch you again
I wish I could still call you friend
I'd give anything

When someone said count your blessings now
'fore they're long gone, I guess I just didn't know how
I was all wrong, They knew better
Still you said forever, And ever
Who knew

Yeah yeah
I'll keep you locked in my head, Until we meet again
Until we, Until we meet again
And I won't forget you my friend
What happened

If someone said three years from now
You'd be long gone
I'd stand up and punch them out
Cause they're all wrong and
That last kiss, I'll cherish
Until we meet again. And time makes
It harder, I wish I could remember
But I keep Your memory
You visit me in my sleep
My darling,

I am a wild woman.
I saw this poem & Liked it, thought someone else might like it...

I am a wild woman
I know, inspite of myself
and in spite of what I've been told
that there's beauty in every age
no matter how old

I am a wild woman
I've learned what it means to be a life bearer
to bear children
to create art
to plant seeds of love

I am a wild woman
from the depths of the dirt underneath my fingernails
to the height of my very soul
I am one with the Earth
the winds from the four directions whisper through my skin

I am a wild woman
and the spirit of every wild woman coalesces in me
for we are each wild women
and we are all the spirit of the wild woman
I will follow the voice in my heart

I am a wild woman
I sing from my heart
I dance with the stars
I howl at the moon
I love uncontrollably

I am a wild woman
from the deepest, darkest, most sacred part of me
I am fearless
I cry in strength
I open my arms to the sky and welcome the rain

I am a wild woman
I nurture, love and protect
I stand, strongly, silently, sweetly for my brothers
I walk dutifully, prayerfully, joyfully upon the mother
and I will not be stopped

It's been one year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This Month Simply Klara celebrates it's first anniversary! Yes It's been one Interesting year! I started this place to please a nagging colleague, I wasn't so keen on blogging when I started out but along the way met Funny, exciting & Interesting people who made blogging so addictive!
So I just want to say THANK YOU guys for making this an exciting experience for me!! THANKS A LOT!!!!!!!!!

Moving on, I eavesdropped this weird argument in a matatu on my way to work today, apparently around 2-3 am today, some poor drunk was knocked down along Thika Road, now the surprising thing is that he had laid there bleeding only to be rushed by some good Samaritan to hospital around 7.30 in bad shape!
Now what shocks me is that, the guy who had knocked him down just drove away & petrol attendants who had witnessed the accident had done nothing to save the poor guys life! Even after confirming he was still breathing!

Now this 2 guys were arguing that it was so inhuman 4 the attendants & the driver to have not assisted the bleeding guy bt the tout was shamelessly saying it was the best action since they would have been held responsible in case the guy had died on them!!!!
He was so defensive I was shocked! I was so tempted to ask him what if it were him or his brother??? Am still wondering , Does that driver have a conscience??
I wonder how one would live with that fact everyday that he knocked someone and drove away! Wondering if she/he died?? Like some gal was saying he could have even taken the guy to a hospital & even dumbed him there than just driving away as if nothing happened just because no one has seen them!

Anyway that's just life!! Have a lovely weekend!!!

Thanks My Gal!
“Do you want to talk?” she asked when she sat next to me. I think she already knew the answer to the question and wasn’t surprised when I chose to say nothing at all. For hours we sat together staring at the ocean as our thoughts shifted with the breeze. Every once in a while she would look over at me and smile in a way that let me know everything would be all right. Every once in a while I would look over at her and see nothing but sincerity.

If you asked me now why I was sad and alone that day, I wouldn’t be able to tell you. All I can remember is my friend’s hand on my shoulder, her gentle smile and the calm reassurance that turned away my fears. No matter what happened I knew she would be there for me just as she was there then. Two hours of her time gave me wisdom beyond my years and the memory of her compassion in everything she did for me is one of the few that will never ever fade.
Had to say gal: Thanx for believing in me!!

On other storos, si I just hate when it rains in the morning!! Leave alone those traffic jams & matatu hassles, I hate when that damn alarm goes off! Aki am getting rid of it!

Great week, Good people!!!
