Catching a Glimpse

Catching a Glimpse

By Otema Yirenkyi
My podcast series is called Catching a Glimpse. The stories and poems I share reflect the journey to the light. In their struggles, achievements and through their tears these men and women could always catch a glimpse of light. In their darkest hours cracks of light emerged. Those sparks ignite determination and build courage. Those sparks bring laughter and happy days!

I hope their stories inspire you to hold on; when you only see the smallest flickers of light... after all that’s hope!

The Letters Part II
This is the final episode in this series . The episode culminates in two end of year letters. I love end of year letters. They update us and connect us to those far away but near in our hearts. They expand our connections and contain our dreams. They feel so intimate and personal - straight from the heart.
