Mother Africa: Thou Art A Continent–Scenic South Africa

January 22, 2014 by Theresa Kwofi No Comments

It is good to live and to live out my fantastic books–Mother Africa: Thou Art A Continent A Collection Of Essays and Time In Conflict: My Poetry Collections With An African Flavor. When my children were very young, I used to tell them about my love for the southern tip of Africa, namely, South Africa, the only country on the African Continent, which does not have a real name, such as Ghana, for instance. Well, my dream came to pass this summer, when my son and I traveled from Cape Coast in Ghana, West Africa to Cape Town, in South Africa, via Johannesburg and Soweto.

The mountains at the tip of the continent, which I have addressed in my book, Mother Africa: Thou Art A Continent A Collection Of Essays as the ‘The Drakensburg Mountains”, are now called by many names, such as ‘The Table Mountains’. Which ever way I looked, these charming mountains, especially from Cape Town to the Cape of Good Hope, gave me the chance to love them more at a scenic and yet; at also, a spiritual inclination. Wow! To stand up on a hill, which allowed me, to lean on a manmade wall to view the beautiful marriage of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, sent a chain of goose bumps all over my body.  http://www.timeinconflict.com

The Mormon Church Is Alive In Ghana

October 11, 2012 by Theresa Kwofi No Comments

As if Ghana has not got her fair share of these institutionalized religions of Christianity and Islam, which are both foreign to Ghana in particular and Africa in general. Here comes the Mormon Church or The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, which is symbolized by a white man and a black man, riding cycles, side by side to spread the Mormon gospel. In disbelief, I would exclaim, Wow!   How is this possible? My family members are aware of my displeasure with these cycle peddling missionaries. I have waited to debate some of these peddlers of mormonism in Ghana, but I have not been successful as yet. When I do become lucky to get them stumble on to my territory, which is my father’s compound, I would write about it. I hope and pray that on my next visit to Ghana, I would be able to bait some of them to fall prey. They always pass me by for they probably sense my curiosity.

The church has put up its temples on some prime real estate at the Cape Coast municipality. I know how much the Ghanaian adores the foreigner. Especially, when the foreigner happens to be a white person, who comes bearing the gifts of the gospel; by mentioning the name of Jesus Christ. This is the name the Mormon Church addresses itself on the sign board at its temples–The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

The Mormons are in Ghana. Yes, they have a couple of temples not too far away from where I live. Here in Brooklyn, we have Ghanaian Mormons. This is very sad and troubling. We the self-haters, we love everything foreign.

Food For Thought: I am a free-thinker and I don’t pay allegiance to any institutionalized religion here on Mother Earth.

Michelle Obama

September 5, 2012 by Theresa Kwofi 25 Comments

Michelle Obama has a natural ablility to connect with people from all walks of life.

She is beautiful and I refer to her as a portrait, that which nobody gets tired from looking at.

Her performance last night at the Democratic National Convention was spectacular.

She knows how to tell a story with vivid imagery. She is a lady.

She is that lady, who is at ease within her own skin.

I Love To Give Birth To Myself Every Now And Then

April 12, 2012 by Theresa Kwofi 6 Comments

I have finally arrived at the community of bloggers.  The train called technology is moving much faster than I can hop on to it. Just like the tortoise, which couldn’t climb a tree and yet, was able to get itself on top of the heavenly tree, where it needed to attend the funeral of Nana Nyankopon’s (The Creator) mother; I have also finally arrived at the top of that heavenly tree top after a long journey. I love to give birth to myself every now and then. What a joy to have finally arrived at that destination! To you all my old folks out there, technology is the norm of the minute and it is not waiting for anybody…So, please hop on to this wagon.

Theresa Kwofi is the author of two well-written books: Mother Africa: Thou Art A Continent A Collection Of Essays and Time In Conflict: My Poetry Collections With An African Flavor.  I love my raw voice so, I write, I publish and I sell my own works at: http://www.timeinconflict.com.

My first book: Mother Africa: Thou Art A Continent A Collection Of Essays can be bought at my website: http://www.timeinconflict.com but Amazon.com portrays my book as an out of print book.  That is not true for Mother Africa: Thou Art A Continent A Collection Of Essays is still in print. I have googled my name to find out that somebody is selling my book: Mother Africa: Thou Art A Continent A Collection Of Essays for 234 British Pounds.  Mother Africa: Thou Art A Continent A Collection Of Essays by Theresa Kwofi, sells for only $20.00.  I write not to belittle my beloved continent, the continent of Africa. Africa, the continent of the ‘Human Family’.

Time In Conflict: My Poetry Collections With An African Flavor is my second book and this also sells for $20.00 and can be purchased at http://www.timeinconflict.com.
