Booker Prize winning writer #BenOkri recites a poem addressed to #DonaldTrump at the #LLF18

HAPPY // SAD
Two very different times of my life.
Both last year.
The topic of mental health and depression is always a difficult subject. Those who have suffered either understand the hardships of changing your brain onto a state that will just not accept.
Those on the other side, simply can’t relate to the others. I believe we are all made of some happinesses and some sadnesses. But WE aren’t defined by simply our monsters but by the moment of euphoria, of achievement and passion. Our moments do not define us. We are what we are. Feelings are a temporary status that do not make ‘us’ US.
As someone who’s suffered from an eating disorder, (in turn cause by serious depression) for which I ended up hospitalised and who constantly fights with ADHD, I fully believe my diseases don’t make me who I am.
As humans, the most authentic thing about us is our capacity to create.
To overcome.
To endure.
To transform.
To love.
And to be greater than our suffering.

I was introduced to the work of Ben Okri by my beloved bro, Papama, in a speech he made at my 30th birthday a few months ago. I was captured by the passage he quoted from "Astonishing the Gods" and decided I would get myself a copy of the book the following day. I ended up getting the book only 6 months later. I haven't looked back since.
You can imagine how excited I was when I saw that he would be part of the Turl Street Festival, having a discussion based on his latest book, "The magic lamp"💃💃💃 I can't even begin to explain to you how magical that session was; from discussions , to him reading excerpts from the book, to a cello music interpretation of the painting being played. I was in an alternate universe.

Of course I wasn't going to miss out on a selfie and a signed book as memorabilia of this experience. He also made it a point to give me a mini lecture on making sure I return to SA to go plough back the lessons learnt abroad.

Yoh! Kumnandi eOxford.

"It is more difficult to love than to die. It is not death that human beings are most afraid of, it is love. The heart is bigger than a mountain. One human life is deeper than the ocean. Strange fishes and sea-monsters and mightly plants live in the rock-bed of our spirits. The whole of human history is an undiscovered continent deep in our souls." #TheFamishedRoad #BenOkri

Ben Okri, man you are goooood! The beginning was hard. I persevered and read the book till the very end. And now want to read it again! .
But first mentally off to Ireland with some short stories by Éilís Ní Dhuibhne. .

Reading, smiling and still star struck 😍😍 that Elif Shafak commented on the post of me reading her book; Bastard of Istanbul earlier in January 😍😍. .

Such a privilege to have painted Nigerian poet & writer, Ben Okri
I call him the Grenfell Laureate because of his poem of solidarity for the Grenfell victims & the injustices that the fire exposed. He has an unblinking focus & challenging gaze. A writer I’ve long admired for his vision, courage & dignity, it felt relevant to paint him with the fiery backdrop, setting sun & reference to Grenfell. We depend on the elements of fire & water, fire destroys but there is hope too ✨
Ben wears the international badge of the imagination ~ he wears it well
