Pregnant Future

(No One Knows What Tomorrow Will Bring)

A True-Life Memoir


 Living with the Nuns my first year in Rome did not prepare me for life in Rome. I was sheltered, protected, and constantly watched by the Nuns. I wanted to fly, to be my own person, and to explore Rome to the fullest. I did not even have a television, and could only listen to the news, with the Nuns in attendance, in their common room. I wanted out, and yet I was afraid to venture out.

The scene between the Madre Superior and Justina solved the problem for Justina and for me. I moved out and it was not pretty. I was now open to all sorts of challenges.

By this time, the line was drawn between me and those other Nigerian snubs. I had no contact with them. They lived in their gilded, and well protected world, and I lived in my own rather confused and disorganized world. It was a very stressful time for me, but for the grace of God… I use this expression a lot because I believe that without God watching over me, and my guardian angels making sure that I did not fall off the cliff, I don’t know where I would have been today. I know how those who tangoed and rhumbaed with me ended.
