Let’s hope I don’t bore you to death with my ramblings on this assignment of “who I am and why I am here” in the blogosphere.
Jacqueline, the face behind acookingpotandtwistedtales, is a passionate Nigerian woman.
I am a wordsmith (on the cusp of authorship, in my mind at least). I am an entrepreneur, an advocate of truth and moral values, a people’s person, a motivator and a bi-linguist; French/English (also attempting to pick as many languages as I can, even just in their smattering forms).
I am the spouse of an interesting and intelligent gentleman who makes each day in my life spontaneous and devoid of boredom.
I am a mother of children who keep all my faculties engaged (physical and non-physical).
So this is me, an avid reader (not mind reader, unfortunately), an everyday woman with a passion for life and family.
I love to sing in my wobbly voice (who cares), to dance and strut my stuff and to laugh heartily. I love fitness and good nutrition when I can encourage my other lazy self to lace on her training shoes and not to eat all the cake.
I am still a child of Evolution.
I started blogging when I got tired of keeping my thoughts penciled in my journals (I still pencil though). It serves as a voice to some internal thoughts and turmoils. I think in clarity, I recuperate and I exhale when I write. It is therapeutic for me.
I see a story in everything, humorous, serious, life matters, beauty, child rearing or anything that inspires me that we might have in common as humans.
So here I am, exhaling after a long time of staying under water.
If I blog successfully throughout the next year, I would have cultivated the discipline of settling down to write and ramble. I would (hopefully) have finished the drafts of the three novels that I am working on.
Indeed it would be good to arrive at those goals, but I believe that the trip through blogging would be a whole lot of fun.
I look forward to meeting and interacting with other members of this community.
Yours in sincerity,
