A WELCOME STRANGER


I was in an area that was a bit unfamiliar to me, but needed to get to an internet café as quickly as possible in order to beat a deadline. I asked a gentleman who was seated near the road for directions, and as he began to use his hands to show me how I

One Year Down The Line


“So when are you going to make your blog an actual website?” I always used to avoid that question, because apart from honestly not knowing the answer, I was a bit nervous about taking the next step. Whereas running a blog on a small scale was fairly easy, I felt managing a website was going

Changing Temperatures


I needed to defrost some heavily frozen food immediately but hadn’t had the foresight to take it out of the freezer beforehand. In a bid to save time, I resorted to an ‘archaic’ method; dump the bowl in warm water, so most of it will defrost before I could effectively warm it. I had so

AN ELEVATOR LESSON


I have always had this weird fear of elevators, especially in a country where the lights could go off at any time. “What if I get stuck?” was one of the first questions that run through my mind (still does sometimes) whenever I had to use an elevator. So wherever I had to go, I

SHIFTING PERSPECTIVES


Abby and John walked to the car park together, laughing about an experience John had had with his girlfriend at a restaurant the night before. He and Abby had fast become good friends, and his girlfriend couldn’t wait to meet her. Speaking of which, he had to go and pick her up for a church

Being Esiaba


“I sometimes wonder how it will feel to be known…to be in the spotlight and to be appreciated. Being the only child has not really been easy and I feel so lonely sometimes. School is another matter altogether. I’d rather everyday were a holiday….” “Esiaba!” Esiaba dropped her pen, startled. Her mum’s loud call had

An Unexpected Blessing


I had wanted something in particular for some time now, but wasn’t willing to spend on it (as like almost every other national service personnel, finding ways to save our little “allawa”* has been one of my main priorities since I started service), so I just forgot about it and moved on. Some days later,

What type of generator are you? (By Nii Laate Lartey)


I have always been fascinated by the inherent power of the human potential. Some have been able to capitalize on this treasure during their lifetime but unfortunately, others allowed it to fossilize. The past two years have been very challenging for anyone in Ghana due to the incessant power outages. The crises were also loaded

About Nana

My name is Nana Boatemaa Amoah, usually known simply as Boatemaa. I’m a Christian and believe we all have a specific purpose to fulfill…that is one main reason why I decided to make my writing more than just a hobby, but also an opportunity to bless others. I never got round to blogging until my best friend of many years, pushed me to muster the courage and let others see what I wrote. That was about almost two years ago, and I’m glad I took that step
