Quote of the week – keeping it local

A-man-of-the-people

"If the herb we seek in the bush grows in the very backyard, are we not saved a journey?"

— from Chinua Achebe's A Man of the People

This week I'm going to try to be especially conscious of looking inward rather than outward for all things.

(I'm digging the book cover design above! It so well captures the era that the book is set in. I did not enjoy this sequel to Things Fall Apart as much as I have other Achebe books but, it is worth reading, if at least to understand that particular moment in our history, from the individual's perspective and experience.)
