I am sure you have met them; Wise men that have words of wisdom for every initiative and caress the English language with style whenever it is time to do their bit. I believe they have garnered even more than old man Albert Einstein could muster. Then again, that is intelligence and not wisdom.
So I’m at a meeting with some friends discouraged about the many happenings of life when I find out that again, I am not alone. We live and we learn, I told this friend of mine, as he explained the ordeals of his struggles. In my head, there was some absolute silence; me lost in my own thoughts and wondering how I would pull through with my ideas. There is such a thing as the Gambian system. You ignore it because you are a part of it but it’s right there eating at you and making you believe “yeup dina baakh”. Fortunately for me, I am yet to fully understand it enough to be a part of it.
