RT has changed!

Come and have a look!

Come and have a look! Reposed Thought has a new and improved website.

From it’s easier-to-access menu bar to it’s visually improved pages, ‘Reposed Thought’ has had a complete design overhaul on the eve of it’s 6 month anniversary. The overriding idea is to make everything easier. The main changes of note include a more visible side bar menu, an easily accessible main menu at the top including a *new poetry* section, and a footer menu at the bottom of each page which includes a ‘search by category’ option. Hopefully this makes your stay and experience more enjoyable. Any feedback welcome. Thanks for stopping by.

Enjoy!

Welcome to my world!

Hi. Welcome to my world!

Journey with me Journey with me…


My name is Gome, a young Christian and student of architecture. I love football, piano, drumming, art, travel, writing, and cooking among other interests that I intend to share in this blog. As I share these insights, I aspire to inspire, encourage, motivate and humour you, my audience. Thanks so much for stopping by.


Why Reposed Thought? The word ‘repose’ is inspired by a first year design project where we were asked to create 3 spaces (for repose, conviviality and making) using 3 shapes (circle, square, triangle) and encouraged to develop a story narrative for how each space connected to the other. The term evokes a state of rest or tranquillity and when fused with the word ‘thought’ gives the idea of reflection (tranquil reflection). As a Christian, I find it particularly valuable spending time in the quiet place, whether its reading the bible or walking and praying as it helps renew my strength.

“Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High [God] will rest in the shadow of the Almighty” (Psalm 91:1)


Expressing myself through different media has always been a feature of my life even from an early age. Whether it was a creative writing exam, or sketching a place we visited on holiday from memory, my early years were spent absorbing my surroundings – kind of like a sponge. I feel ready to now share what I’ve learned.

2015 is a special year for me as I celebrate spending exactly half my life in Zambia (my homeland) and half in England – two somewhat similar yet vastly different experiences. Their cultures, climate (still finding England cold), food, people, norms, and traditions have undoubtedly helped shape my character, tolerance and overall perspective of the world.

I invite you to join me on my first EVER blogging journey to see what the world looks like through my eyes.

Enjoy the ride.

Bless 🙂
