This Thursday September 4th 2014 in our book club discussion, Blogger Ty will be the moderator, she has also provided the Subject matter. The book, which is extremely short, you will find within the post below, please be here and ready, Also please read, we will try to find books which are not too large, however if there is such a book which is interesting and which comes up for our club, then two weeks will be given before we approach that one, all who agree or object  please state so into the comments. We thank Yw for the excellent job he did last night, and for the subject which he also provided, we were poked with the thought provoking paper on Nacirema and I must say that discussion went very well, it made us realize the  power of perception. Again thank you for showing up, although some was missing, but the interaction was outstanding, kudos to you all. Knowledge is Key and so we push forward to the next, please be on time as we aim to begin @ 8 pm.

Esu, a Pataki

There was once two farmers who were best friends since they were children, their family farm were on the opposite side of each other. Every day they would go to farm and then at noon they would take a brake and have lunch and shoot the breeze together. They were as close as two peas in a pod, and even made a covenant that they would be fiends forever, nothing could break their friendship. One day while both were working o the opposite side of the road on their farm Esu (Eh-Shu) walked by, he was wearing a  cap where one side was white and the other side black.One of the farmers saw him first and hailed him , “Ekale ooooo Esu, Ba wo Ni Nko? Good afternoon Esu, how are you, you fine? Esu responded, “Dada ni, mommy nko, daddy nko, oremi nko? is everybody ok?, “Kosi wa hala sah”, no problem sah. and Esu walked on

As he went further down the road, he the other farmer called out smiling and waving, “Esu oooo, ba wo ni oooo, Ekale oooo!, Esu waved back and hailed “Ekale, Ba wo ni?, good afternoon, how are you? to which the farmer responded, “mo wa dada, Esu, se alafia ni!, “I am fine, all is at peace”

Later that day, the two friends sat down together to have lunch as they did everyday since they were children. One asked “did you see Esu today pass in his white cap?

The other answered, “Yes, I saw him pass today, but he wore a black cap”, hey both began correcting each other, both insisting the Esu wore white and the other said he aw black, the argument became heated and turned into a fight, all blood run. The case was brought before the elders. Both were bloodied and bruised, clearly the friendship was over, but while court was in session, both arguing that the other called him a liar, in walked Esu with the cap, painted half white and half black. They were both correct.

I have added this pataki for a reason, w=in our discussion tonight I will make my reason clear!

Teach this brought tears. I love you and I am glad that you opened as you did. Sometimes all someone needs to hear is that someone is there for them. I love you as a mother (miknow yu cudden be mi madda), I love you as a sister, I love you as a friend. What I admire about Mr. Nile is the love he has for his children (sometimes I swear I wish he was my dad or the dad of my children)… Mr. Nile is very intelligent, deep but Ilike the ragga-ragga side of him. The side that does… Read more »
