Hello world!

Welcome to my World! Thank you so much for stopping by!

My name is Sihle Isipho Nontshokweni. I started this blog 4 years ago. It’s a good thing I didn’t post since. Then I ws TYpinG LiKE tHS TRyiNG to BE wITTy aka wHeATY.

Since 2012, I have been changing as a person, travelling, meeting new people. I’ve also been writing exciting poetry and short stories that I’d love to share with you. I am still so hungry to explore the world. I am afflicted by the desire to learn. I am currently living in Beijing, China.

Whats next after this, lets see.

I simply know I want to feel alive and to live passionately and joyFULLY.


The name right? 🙂 Apple Crunch 🙂

The name feels like things to me → biting into something fresh/ a thought/

 the desire to live life fully/ a penchant for life/  being present / wakefulness/ Joy

The tagline question, “I want to know what you ache for and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing” is from a poem titled the invitation’ by Oriah Mountain Dreamer.

I think of the ache as purpose, the invitation question as a call to living. Truly Living ? Living Engaged? Living Fully? To your aches content?

Every post is inspired by this wakefulness, this awareness of life inside and around me. Be it in God (my reason for being), politics, love, family, loss, risk. Every post reveals a bite-sized crunch into God†, life, relationships, socio-politics of black lives.

My sincere hope is that this small corner of the  world wide web will leave you thinking and challenged to live. That the ache would keep you daring.

Thank you for connecting and reading the thoughts and stories shared on Sihle’sapplecrunch.

Lets Journey on and do life together. Xx

Happy Reading!
