Proverbial Wisdom #1

Excerpt from Yoruba Proverbs by Oyekan Owomoyela

When the year is done, the bonnonbonnon tree changes its color. (when the season changes, one changes ones habits)

There has been major changes in our lives, for we know the individual occurrences in our homes. Oya has manifested herself time and time again. For some it has seemed as it is too much to handle and others have accepted the change with open arms. Let us conform to our realities of the now and not live in the past for it will not do us any justice in achieving what life has in stored for us. Let's shed these old ideas, ways, and habits and step into our new light for this is our new season!
