Contemplation on the Odu Oturupon Otura

Even as my body stills, I can not quell the undulating seas upon which my mind finds itself. Thoughts fill my head like rain drops, drumming the rhythm of a life well lived, but not yet completed, nor fully understood.  It's only after the day is done when I close my eyes that the night brings a momentary void from which I am reborn.  To face another day, another song, another segment of the unchartered waters that are my life. -- Marcos Ifalola Sanchez

Thanks for giving your artistic inspiration of this odu, as I am trying my best to under and overstand it from our own western context. There's very little written on this odu that I can fully comprehend.
