Day 1666: Intelligence, Easter and Family

Don’t be intimated by the intelligence of others be inspired by it – that’s what I have to tell myself.


It’s 12 : 04  PM on day 1666 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, pray,    read Ezekiel 26 , publish my Disability of the Day feature,  learn one new thing – It takes Saturn 29.4 Earth years to orbit the Sun. This slow movement against a backdrop of stars led to the planet being nicknamed “Lubadsagush” – or “oldest of the old” – by the ancient Assyrians. – go visit people and hang out with friends and family.


Today I realized that yesterday at Easter lunch with my family members I felt slightly intimated by the intelligence that surrounded me people in my family are either teachers, engineers, entrepreneurs or in the healthcare sector and then there’s me who tries to help people my family is not snobbish at all but I think because they can’t put me in a box they don’t know quite what to do with me I’m just going to do my thing and not worry about not having any sort of a title.

Day 223

The most important thing that parents can teach their children is how to get along without them. – Frank A. Clark

It’s 10: 05 PM on day 223 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself Appam – A bread made of rice batter – and beef curry for breakfast and spend Easter lunch and dinner with my family (see pictures below).

Today lying on a mattress in my aunt’s TV room I heard that my cousin’s nine-year-old daughter was getting her father’s ‘old’ BlackBerry and in that moment I couldn’t help feeling as though my cousin and her husband were missing a trick with regards to their parenting because in the twenty years that I’ve been alive I’ve never owned an ordinary cellphone let alone a BlackBerry and not because I didn’t want one either but because I wanted to wait until I could pay for it myself. Are you spoiling your children by giving them everything they want on a silver platter?
