Day 18 (Tales by MoonWright)

“Hard-work beats talent when talent fails to work hard.” – Kevin Durant When Kevin Durant said this in a movie some years ago, I felt it. Then I remember Dr Myles Munroe said the richest place in the world is the graveyard. Graveyards are filled with a wealth of untapped potential, filled with raw talents […]

Day 17 (Tales by MoonWright)

My WhatsApp profile status says, “Resist the temptation to stress me” and Lord knows I mean every word. This is because I get tired of things easily, especially when some form of stress enters. I’m ‘stressophobic.’ I think this is the reason why I could relate with my brother from another mother, Jon Snow, when […]

Day 16 (Tales by MoonWright)

You probably checked what today’s challenge would be about and looked forward to reading about someone greatly inspiring, an icon or a legend perhaps. A shaker of nations. An overcomer. A great achiever. Someone with a story worth writing and reading about, someone that has seen the unseeable, heard the ‘unhearable,’ and faced the unfaceable. […]

Day 15 (Tales by MoonWright)

I have been in church services where when the leader enjoins the congregation to pray for people, the tempo is low, but it suddenly increases when asked to pray for our destiny helpers to locate us. Our voices increase as though the higher the volume, the quicker and more accurate the GPS of our destiny […]

Day 14 (Tales by MoonWright)

I was almost not going to write anything today. This is because I couldn’t think of five or even any thing outrightly weird I like. Wow, I’m a sane and normal person after all, I thought. And ‘weird’ is relative. Person wey de crase no sabi say im de crase. Anyway, I finally remembered one […]

Day 13 (Tales by MoonWright)

I miss playing football. I also miss playing video games. These two, growing up not exactly being an only child but also an only child, felt like family to me. I didn’t know it then, but as I write this, it’s all coming back.  They were my escape from the things I was exposed to […]

Day 12 (Tales by MoonWright)

Nothing fascinating has happened today, but let me tell you about something that happened some days ago on my way to work. I prefer taking the BRT buses these days, especially the new blue ones. They have that ‘abroad in Lagos’ experience. The red Lag buses have failed me more than once — developing an […]

Day 11 (Tales by MoonWright)

“Everything is not always as it seems.” ⁃ Charles Westmoreland, Prison Break “A mind needs books like a sword needs a whetstone.” ⁃ Tyrion Lannister, Game of Thrones “There’s nothing more powerful in the world than a good story.” ⁃ Tyrion Lannister, Game of Thrones “I don’t want it.” ⁃ Jon Snow, Game of Thrones […]

Day 10 (Tales by MoonWright)

I can’t remember but I think we had just finished our JS1 exams, so we were free and noisy. Everyone was having some sort of fun. Me and some friends were playing table soccer and whenever one of us was about to use the pen cover to apply pressure on the button to score, Chico […]

Day 9 (Tales by MoonWright)

Dear Ayo, How are you, really? I’ve missed you. I miss the old days. A lot has changed now and you’re not the same person you were few years ago. I know you wish you could rewind time and make better decisions. I’ve always known you to beat yourself up, but you’ve been doing too […]
