“What can be said in New Year rhymes,
That's not been said a thousand times?
The new years come, the old years go,
We know we dream, we dream we know.
We rise up laughing with the light,
We lie down weeping with the night.
We hug the world until it stings,
We curse it then and sigh for wings.
We live, we love, we woo, we wed,
We wreathe our prides, we sheet our dead.
We laugh, we weep, we hope, we fear,
And that's the burden of a year.”

“Kenya can be a paradise again, but 4 it 2 be that,, It has 2 be loved materially by its leaders.. we have been reduced 2 a people busy typing sweet nothings about our country on social media while we watch as our leaders comfortably starve it til its bone dry!!”
“I filmed them in their (cultural orientation) classes in Kenya. They opened up very quickly to me. I was very moved by that and attributed that to a wonderful interpreter that I found whom they trusted.”
