Previously in Njambi’s World… We’re seated in a small ballroom in Kilimani quaffing glasses of box wine before the open bar closes. Nancy and I forked up a ton of cash for this women’s seminar. The spirit of it is to have raw and candid conversations about the men in our lives. We are eating […]

The Pebble in My Shoe

Previously in Njambi’s World… I can’t breathe. Something sinister is lurking in the room, something terrifying. My eyes won’t open. My lungs won’t fill with air. My hands are pinned down. There’s a boulder on my ribs. There are hands around my neck, dry, rough hands gripping tighter and tighter. I can’t move. I. Can’t. […]

You’re staring down the barrel of a six-gun and you don’t even know it. How can you, when you’ve just met? You’re in that blissful, tipsy state where the music has started to course through your veins and you can’t sit still. He’s seated across from you with a faraway look in his eyes. The […]

Previously in Njambi’s World… The Jambo ballroom at Safari park is abuzz with conversation and clinking glasses when we walk in. We are there for the Aviation industry’s Annual Dinner. Kagwe places a cautious palm on the small of my back, lightly enough that I couldn’t shrug it off if I tried to. I don’t […]

You are tired. Exhausted. Your bones are aching. Your muscles are sore. Your eyes are saltier than sea water but it’s three o’clock in the morning and you can’t sleep – for no reason other than sleep eludes you. You’ve done a yoga for sleep and relaxation routine. You’ve tried deep breathing. You’ve had two […]

Nestled on the slopes of two magnificent hills was a small village built along the banks of a great river that ran through the valley. At the every edge of the village, closest to the forest on the highest parts of the hills lived the oldest man known to the villagers. He was said to […]

Like I mentioned in my last article, “Why We Meet the People We Meet”, I am fan of the many creation stories that exist out there. Many of these stories tell a tale of Source existing in a formless space of darkness. Source had always been there, unencumbered by the constraints of the illusion of […]

Why We Meet the People We Meet

When we were little we used to make bets by crossing our pinkie fingers. These bets were binding, social contracts that we honored religiously (especially if they involved morning loaf in boarding school), and are one of my earliest lessons on honor and keeping my word. I’d never questioned why we used our pinkie fingers […]

Once upon no time, there was a little Soul who said to God, “I know who I am.” And God said, “That’s wonderful! Who are you?” And the Little Soul shouted, “I’m the Light!” God smiled a big smile. “That’s right!” God exclaimed. “You are the Light.” The Little Soul was so happy, for it […]

When you have a social engagement with someone and you call to ask where they are and they say, “I am en route,” they obviously haven’t even left, right? We all know that one person who continually arrives at the office late and disheveled, tie in one hand, a comb in the other – first […]
