Awombness: A Prospect

Jan 22, 2021

I love my city, Johannesburg. With its streets paved with gold (euro-centric folk could only imagine). Mining continues to this very day. In a rather unregulated way, with “African migrants” waging wars/battling death in old mining tunnels. So much to discuss in the above paragraph. But I will start with the latter. African migration. Thankfully, […]

Awombness: Tribute to a Legend

My aunt, my mom’s eldest sister, passed away. She was going to be 73 next month. Her death was sudden, but expected. She hadn’t been well for the last few weeks. She was hospitalised after Christmas. I like to think she died in her sleep. At peace. Aunty Marlene was a remarkable woman. Stylish. Trendy. […]

Awombness: Restoration. My daughter changed the course of my life. The idea for the podcasting platform was born while I was battling post-natal depression. I like to think that it was all part of the birthing of the mother – me. We serve a mighty God. Submit your reviewName: Email: Review Title: Rating: 12345Review:   […]

Awombness: Bread and Butter

Awombness: Bread and Butter. Today is a good day. I’m making my own bread. Haven’t done this in ages. There’s something wholesome about it. Mothering. Transformative too. It’s been one helluva journey. And I am grateful to the process. If you had to tell me five years ago that I’d be baking bread for my […]

Awombness: To God Be the Glory

Awombness: To God Be the Glory. Philippians 1:6 reads “…That He who hath a begun a good work in you shall not rest until it is completed.” That piece of scripture boggled my mind as a young adult. I grew up in a tiny coloured suburb called Bosmont. My life prospects were slim. I was […]

Awombness: Write or Wrong

Jan 12, 2021
Candice Nolan

I guess I’m finding my voice. Blogging, I mean. That’s how this whole podcasting platform started. Off a blog I began writing during one of my earlier hospitalisations. I’m sure I mentioned before, but I spend a lot of time in my head. It’s not so bad now. And I’m trying my hand at blogging. […]

Awombness: How Do You Eat an Elephant?

Awombness: How do you eat an elephant. A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step ~ Lao Tzu. Freedom was the goal at the end of Nelson Mandela’s walk. It remains the goal for all the world’s people. Freedom from poverty. Freedom from wage slavery. A popular refrain during the struggle, immortalised […]
