The 10 1/2 Inclinations -by Ben Okri

1 There is a secret trail of books meant to inspire and enlighten you. Find that trail.

2 Read outside your own nation, colour, class, gender.

3 Read the books your parents hate.

4 Read the books your parents love.

5 Have one or two authors that are important, that speak to you; and make their works your secret passion.

6 Read widely, for fun, stimulation, escape.

7 Don't read what everyone else is reading. Check them out later, cautiously.

8 Read what you're not supposed to read.

9 Read for your own liberation and mental freedom.

10 Books are like mirrors. Don't just read the words. Go into the mirror. That is where the real secrets are. Inside. Behind. That's where the gods dream, where our realities are born.

10½ Read the world. It is the most mysterious book of all.

Its been long...

Its been long since ,
I met myself and had a talk.

Its been long since,
I sat alone and smiled.

its been long since ,
I listened to the radio.

its been long since ,
I looked into the mirror
and accepted myself for who I was.

its been long since ,
I tried to see more than
shadows of me or who I used to be.

its been long since,
I to let go of the past and tried
to understand what I have is enough.

its been long since ,
I wrote a blog post and
let you all know am still alive.

and this all I'm trying to do


and its been long since ,
I studied hard
but I will do that later :P
