The fishing boat cuts the silent water like a knife. Zemano and Grace are out looking for periwinkle shells. They left home at seven o’clock this morning hoping to fill a bucket or two with the small, black, cone-shaped shells.

−This is our only source of income, Grace tells us while she is paddling towards the shore where, in theory, the shells are to be found in the riverbank mud.

Seth Adam Smith

Having been married only a year and a half, I’ve recently come to the conclusion that marriage isn’t for me.

Now before you start making assumptions, keep reading.

I met my wife in high school when we were 15 years old. We were friends for ten years until…until we decided no longer wanted to be just friends. 🙂 I strongly recommend that best friends fall in love. Good times will be had by all.

Nevertheless, falling in love with my best friend did not prevent me from having certain fears and anxieties about getting married.

LIVING IN THE VILLAGE

Candidly speaking, the freedom to say what keep running on my mind had been a very big attraction for my desire to blog. and in spite of daily prompting, i still find it a bit challenging to kick off with a steady daily flow. Be that as it may, i am quite determine to make something tangible out of my blog life. Though i had posted some few things, i believe i  have all the time to make it worthwhile.

The good news is i am in the midst of villagers who cares so much with understanding that one need to know the right way to find a perfect bearing  and are there with support to make the effort fruitful. Villager i am and would ever be. Why?, because it is all about building relationship. THE GLOBAL VILLAGE signifies mass movement of minds of people who has information to share wired together by technology as a potent force for massive social change for both economical and political transformation. Where else would i want to be?.

The beauty is building value. ” A tree is never known to make a forest”. In building value, you are building prominence and in doing that, you are building business and that will surely lead to success.

The global village life is quite abstract. Could only be seen and felt by the mind, and its only the mind  that will oil and work the wheel to keep the village moving to the desired end that make LEADERS to emerges with knowledge that constantly create more leaders. That’s where i will ever be.
