Remember the Lord

Suddenly he had clarity. The same blessed feeling he had had when he read his first novel, a Jeffrey Archer authored, called Kane and Abel, when he had been eleven years old.

The Achiever Habit

Sins had formed a new habit, whereby as soon as he woke up, he undressed, and stand under the icy cold shower for a duration of exactly two minutes, feeling the numb pulsating waves of sleep disappearing from his mind, and the day ahead getting brighter in focus. A 750 ml gulp of water in … Continue reading The Achiever Habit

The Rant of A Gentleman

Words couldn't describe Malcolm's state of mind. It wasn't shock.

Rants, Facts and Objectivity

Malcolm was an odd one.
