About

Just here to connect, share and learn. I really love poetry and a good narrative.

Nature is amazing in every which way.

I love food, mostly everything except grasshoppers, which unfortunately, are a delicacy in my home country Uganda.

That’s me in black with my eaters in crime

I love to lose myself in fantasy and fiction and I also love to listen and learn from people’s real life experiences.

I love those shades too


Writing and reading takes me places I cannot be and has brought me a freedom that has evaded me for so long.

I do travel every now and then though, and I take the mike once in a while; tough crowd in this pic though. I sat down promptly.

I appreciate great photography and totally believe in empathy. I think that every story has an impact, especially when told in a right way and that’s one thing I enjoy doing; Telling these tales.

My debut publication.

I wrote, then published this lovely gem of a poetry book on May 17th 2021. Read some of the reviews on Goodreads.

I’ve just finished my debut novel and I think I have a real treat of a tale, coming March 14th 2022. Watch this space.

  1. Perhaps this answers my question: Your name is Jude? Tell me more about grasshoppers–as in how they are prepared (seasoned with spices?) to make them so delish? ๐Ÿ˜‰ God bless you this coming week!

    1. Well the species of grasshopper matters. I gotta look up the name. But I will get back to you with it. I did say I don’t eat them though, personally

  3. I just got confused…Do you like to eat grasshoppers? What other insects are on the menu?

    1. They are a delicacy to most but I don’t like to eat them. White ants are the only other insects eaten in Uganda (that I know of).๐Ÿ˜Š

      1. Wow! I have heard of other countries eating things like crickets. I can’t stand insects alive so I don’t know if I could eat them dead. The few things I CANNOT eat are frogs legs, snails, and internal organs!

        1. I always like to try new foods. We have such a variety of staple foods in Uganda. You can grow almost anything, anywhere with little fuss,. So the rare things are the delicacies. I’d love trying new foods, but then again, I’m a curious soul. I’d try any food at least once. intestines/offals are also quite normal here, but only from specific animals.

          1. I also like to try different foods but when I think of different I think more culturally, not necessarily different creatures! lol.

            1. Yeah same for me. I steer clear of endangered and culturally unacceptable and a few other taboos

  4. I don’t like the idea of eating grasshoppers either. I found a cricket in my kitchen floor the other day. It had been making a huge racket for days. Tiny insect such a noisy being.

    1. The breed people eat here is quite different and seasonal. They don’t eat all kinds of grasshoppers. I actually have no problem with those that eat them or being around, Ive tried them and I think I’m allergic

    personality of the person behind the blog.
