Sequins and Sapphires

Kathryn Kazibwe: I love music. I love the way notes and melodies unite and blend to create something whose beauty is almost tangible. I love how the lyrics meld themselves to that beauty and give birth to an orgasmic explosion of meaning. I love music, but unfortunately, I cannot carry a tune to save my life! It is a disability […]

I just want to be loved!

By Kathryn Yule Mweupe Kazibwe: Caitlin Moran said it right, “So much of being a woman is keeping secrets.” Nobody needs to smell your scent or see your stains; you can't let anyone know what you feel inside, else you'll become a social pariah. To many a modern woman, this has risen to scary levels; you cannot let a man […]

A woman’s strength

By Kathryn Yule Mweupe Kazibwe: A woman's strength is in her silence. Even when she is suffering, going through hell, a woman has all the power in the world only if she bears all without a single peep from her mouth. That is the message the traditional woman holds on to, and passes on dutifully to her young daughters. It […]

Jacob and I (IV)

By Kathryn Yule Mweupe Kazibwe: It took Jacob a week to remember me; seven long days during which I waited eagerly for his call. They don't say the first cut is the deepest for nothing! Even after his less-than-poetic treatment of me, I subconsciously held the hope that maybe there was some truth in those poems he wrote me. Yes, […]

Jacob and I (III)

By Kathryn Yule Mweupe Kazibwe: Like in the movies, it is only after giving up all I had that the rose-tinted glasses fell from my eyes and I finally saw the man for what he was. And boy was I shocked! So my Jacob actually wasn't an angel. His halo had morphed into a disheveled afro. The spark in his […]

Jacob and I (II)

By Kathryn Yule Mweupe Kazibwe: The most cliché sayings are also always the truest. Be careful what you wish for, because you just might get it. On the Saturday that Jacob invited me to his house for dinner, I had been waiting for his call. I obviously agreed. I tried to convince myself that it was just dinner, but I […]

Jacob and I

By Kathryn Yule Mweupe Kazibwe: Few things are harder than forgiving oneself, especially for breaking, to no gain, a promise that was meant to be kept. I know this, but I still make promises, to myself as well as to others, and keep breaking those promises. When I vowed to keep myself sexually pure until marriage, I was serious about […]

My part in her story

By Kathryn Mweupe Yule Kazibwe: In life we make lots of connections. Those lost along the way are not always wrong. They are simply lost links whose lessons it is upon us to decipher. I recently ran into a long lost friend of mine. It took me a while to recognize the beauty who practically shouted my name as I […]
