Today, we shall lay to rest a man who wrote fifteen novels, bore three sons and a daughter, and waited to see tens of grandchildren. After 95 years, we finally mark the sweet leap to yonder of my mentor, the man who build a global media company from scratch, and shook the literary stage with a simple quake of his pen.   Death is a function of nature that must activate itself at some point. We have no sadness or pain or regret in allowing the African Bull safe passage into that controversial realm – the other life. But we’re joyous to look back and see what I call the Kingdom of Sweat, the palace of pain, and the era of making the impossible emphatically possible.   By all means I am proud that my grandmother accepted this man.

Time to package and upgrade Settle down on permanent storage   Advanced commands defining responsibility Hard to trace, calibration all the tougher All the time, a need to scan for external changes   The pallets come in handy Dragging and dropping from that scripture Auto running feeds from that soap-opera   Looking up to the skies Wondering who’s got the...
