The one thing I noticed about grief is, even though I was struggling to make sense of the world, the world did not, and does not stop.
At first, it was something I was angry about. How could everyone continue to be happy while I was in such hurt. But then I realized, because it does not stop, and in a very odd way, that is how we eventually have hope and purpose again.
I was pleased to receive a couple of festival selections for writing I had worked on over the past year. A short film script I wrote and submitted as part of a screenwriting contest "Nysa" got selected for the Macoproject Film Festival. Then the pilot episode script for my African TV Drama made it as a Semi-Finalist for the Richmond International Film Festival. The latter, I am working towards one day sharing with the world as one of those once-in-a-lifetime life changing projects.
