I Am… not Was.

There is nothing as good as in like being seen by old friends looking great and happy.
Mingling with friends (not fake ones) and also vacating are possible ways of getting rid of unnecessary tensions. I spent my last week in 2013 with my newly found queer family in Umlazi township, Durban. We visited several places e.g. the beach.

With that said…

Here I’m wearing my new swimsuit, letting go of all the bad energies I experienced in 2013.
The beach is known for cleansing. I’m starting my 2014 with lightness and brightness.
Wishing to meet new friends who are not bitter and angry like my previous. They know who they are no grudges attached.
If you know that you are femme, brilliant and kindhearted, please find me on facebook.
My name is Bathilox Dambuza.
I’m your friend not a foe.
