Hoeing a gully

In our #WisdomWednesdays series we share Yorùbá òwe or proverbs from Prof. Oyekan Owomoyela’s Yoruba Proverbs. Some of the òwe can be read here.

As you know our mission is to encourage creative expansion. One way to choose to do that is through the expression of African thoughts in an African way. We show each òwe in both N’Ko script and in the latin script. Below we offer our interpretation. Share yours with us on instagram or email us!

Today’s proverb:

2020 started out as a year so simple and yet, very quickly has turned into something no one has expected. Rain clouds, silver linings, pressure creating diamonds, kwk. Sometimes a heavy proverb is where we will get the humor to look forward to more #WisdomWednesdays
