Contemplations on the Odu Iwori Oshe (iwori ose, iwori wowo)

We are all just one breath away from ruin, whether because of unexpected illness, financial or natural disaster or random acts of violence. Anyone who says their fame or fortune comes solely from hard work and does not factor in luck and happenstance is filled with a fool's hubris and delusions of grandeur and control. The only way we, as individuals and as a species, can survive, is to hedge our bets by nurturing community, and strengthening and extending our tribes.  If we help each other, we help us all.  -- Marcos Ifalola
