By Iteti: Based on true and actual events, this is the story of Sarah and Jeremiah (not real names), in their effort to create a life together. It's not every day that you meet a couple like Sarah and Jeremy, the kind who bring to life the phrase, opposites attract. As I flipped through thirty-year-old photographs in the couple's living […]

Beauty in the Mending: Zaria Leaves

By Iteti: “Honeybee, wake-up!” It sounded like a distant cry. Desperate and filled with longing. I should wake up, she thought. Sleep seemed to be her favourite companion these days.
