I’m still trying to find someday on the calendar. Its not a day of the week and its not a month so saying you will complete your goals “someday” is clearly not an option. I was once an abuser of someday. The day used to describe when I would begin to live my life. Well guess what, someday is today.

Life spins people, bouncing them here and there, back and forth, knocking them up against the cold and the hunger, over and over again. And all we can hope is that, while in its grip, while being spun, we somehow smash into our purpose. 25 year-old, Zimbabwean-English musician, Tinashe seemed to collide with his, heart first.
Born in Harare, Zimbabwe, Tinashe’s mother left him in Highfield with relatives, while she fled to England to try to provide some sort of refuge [...]
