So, for our new month wish; we do have a writer, RUBY NATHAN-UTU, born and raised in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria; She is a lawyer who enjoys reading immensely. A publisher of I HAVE SEEN A MAN. You can also look it up on www.okadabooks.com. In addition to practicing law, she runs THE BUSY MINDS BOOKCLUB. Ruby lives in Port Harcourt where she practices her profession as a lawyer and also engages in educational volunteer work at her spare time.
Now, time to savour her words.
The year has ended, for some – tragedies! nothing else to look forward to.
It just began for others – goodness happened to them.
Some can’t wait for it to be over, others want it to stay a little longer.
Whatever it is, whatever may have or have not happened, remember Tambosele
That’s the name of someone in my place. The name isn’t common. Growing up I knew just one person with it, shortened to Tambo. It was in later years I got to know the full name.
In my dialect, it means literally – “Today is not Tomorrow”
Which is another way of saying nobody knows tomorrow.
So as long as you have breath, remember Tambosele.
