RELIGION

Postcard from Osun (1)

If the idle mind is the devil’s workshop, and the curious mind is the devil’s playground, my mind has been the devil’s playground since I was a teenager.

Competing is like accepting your competition is better than you are and you feel a need to meet up. You use the person as a yardstick to measure your success. What happens when you meet up?
