Urikuendepi?

There is the plan and there is the PLAN. The plan that you know to the dot. Then the plan that pans out before you, a path that opens up ONLY when you step out, leg in air and just when that leg is about to land, a chunk of the paths appears. Imagine it, happening over and over again. What type of a journey is that?

According to the system of how things are supposed to work, that journey is not practical…

The world says, in order to make it out here, I need to know where l’m going, the a to z of the plan,  l need a 5 year plan, a 10 year plan, plan B, plan Z…

So, how does one navigate the dots and the tees, when a plan formulates in the depth of chaos? When a purpose is woven whilst one is their mother’s womb? When the dawning/realization of it, formulates as life is unravelling in the midst of:

Homelessness

Statelessness

When one does not know where the next meal is coming from

When the plan to buy a rubber duck toy for your child, is the most luxurious thought that one cannot afford to visit

Urikuendepi? Shona my mother tongue  (translated: where are you going?)

Psalms: 37 verses 23 and 24

23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord,
And He delights in his way.
24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down;
For the Lord upholds him with His hand.

Reflections (interesting fact)

Chamunyurududu is a Shona word translated dive, scuba, tide.

As l was exploring writing this piece the word Chamunyurududu, my mother tongue visited me well before titling the above word piece Urikuendepi?

Chamunyurududu is a very complex word for me even as a Shona speaker, so l found it very fascinating that it somehow made its way into my thinking space. What made this word a point of reflection is it’s been 2 weeks since Heaven shared her diving experience.

Well, 2 days ago I checked with my Shona friends and googled what Chamunyurududu means in English it was very surprising and interesting to find out that it means dive, scuba, tide…

What are the chances?!
