In all my time in Ghana I had never heard the term until today. Was on y way to work and listening to my usual morning programme when one of the announcers made the comment that ' ah, the weather is demanding oh'. At first I was at a loss as to what this could be, until slowly-slowly the issue came to light. Basically what she was saying was that the rainy weather 'demanded' that people be a bit more amorous (than usual?). Had a good laugh of course.
The upside is that the weather did demand me to write! Despite the lack of sun, I find the cloudiness and the drizzle a refreshing change from the hot, humid weather we have been having lately. Though I am not sure if it's the start of the rainy season it will be good to see the place being green again. There are a couple of plants in my yard that I hope it will not be too late to rescue. Will see.
I must of course apologize - yet again - for my silence. Who ever said silence was golden was obviously not a blogger. Have been overwhelmed by work - after effects of a new Minister and a new government - and just have not had the time to link the daily grind with my blog, though heaven's knows there has been enough material that could keep me going for decades! Though I have worked primarily in the public sector for most of my working life, it's been my first experience at this level of management and going through this transitional period. Interesting. Have also been spending a bit more time visiting schools as we are undertaking a baseline survey as the use of information and communication technology (ICT) at second cycle institutions. Sobering to say the least. Though I must also add that there were some pockets of innovation and excellence that were worth noting. Perhaps more on that later - though truth be told I like to keep my work life off line and not in my blog.
Well there, not a long post - or a particularly inspirational one at that - but yes, it did feel good. Here is to more demanding weather - yes, all definitions and connotations accepted.
