Hi. My name is Okang and this blog is just a collection of my many random thoughts and a few of the things I like.
I am a wordsmith or wordscultptor, if you please, (writer is becoming dated). Music, songwriting, graphic and interior design, custom t-shirts, poetry, the quest for knowledge and learning; those are all my hobbies.
I write poetry, maybe because I like the beauty of words and how even the simplest ones can move the most complex of beings. Or maybe it’s because I am very good with words and it’d be a shame to waste all that talent.
I like music, for the pleasure it gives the soul, but especially for it’s capacity to transcend demographic divides and speak to people in a universal language. I like the fact that I can exploit this tool and get my message across whenever I want. Wherever I want.
I like to meet people, to interact, to build relationships, to exchange ideas and sharpen them with intellectual intercourse and productive conversation, perhaps because when I sharpen them, they sharpen me and grow me, or maybe I just like to talk to people because they find me interesting?
I like beauty and creativity, the thrill of being an innovative maverick, the pleasure of knowing that my brainchild is the fixation of my audience. I like being different; the good kind of different, the interesting kind of different.
I like reading and I love to study people. It teaches me how to live, or maybe how not to live. I like to push the envelope, to find solutions. Maybe that’s the reason I picked up chess and Sudoku.
I like challenges; they bring out the best in me. Or perhaps I’m a perfectionist and an incurable optimist. Or maybe it’s just the undying faith in my soul that the task before me is never as great as the force behind me.
