Akwaaba- Welcome Back
I am excited to be slicing today. In Ghana we say ‘Akwaaba’ which means welcome back. My third year of slicing, this makes me feel so good. The benefits have been extensive. Writing daily, which never happened in my world, but now it comes easily, this appreciated thanks to slicing.
I look around me daily and I see so many things, events and topics I can capture and write extensively about. I was really excited yesterday but had the jitters remembering the first on March, so I decided to write a list of things I saw on my way to work.
The list is extensive and I now have to look for stories, description, poetry and compelling ways to put them on paper, elaborating so it makes you enjoy my ride with me.
Just like this ride I hope we all have a great time being the writers we are. It is amazing how words spew out when we get started. Let’s enjoy each others’ words and worlds this month, akwaaba.
