My left knee is killing me! The pain is unrelenting. Road trips take a toll - that much, I have always known. This is my first real road trip since 2019. Before then, I took them all the time, long drives from Lagos to Auchi, usually with my father at the wheel. The last time I was on the road for this long was 2017, with my entire family in our blue Volkswagen Sharon; early 2000s RnB music on the radio; my father and I in front with keen eyes on the road; my mum and sisters, at the back, sleeping in unplanned shifts.
So many quotable quotes this week. I'm spoiled for choice.
I really enjoyed reading this (It did more for me than the class I'm currently in). Anyway, I just wanted to state that I loved the concepts you explored and more so, how you explored them. Some are things I think about on and off , the luck thing especially. You put these thoughts to words and that made for a fantastic read.
Travelling with family on long-distance trips has always been a revealing experience about my parents. Literally, when you are confined in a car, for hours at a time, there's nothing to do but place your trust in their hands. I like how you point out thaht that our trust may be a blindspot to how hour parents really feel, and it really, it does take hindsight to understand those anxieties.
Hi Mo Isu,
Thanks for the mention (I love it!!!)
I find a lot of your articles relatable and I enjoyed reading them (and I keep coming back).
I've read a couple of your works on Medium also and sincerely my first thought was "Nah! this guy is crazy" (take that as a compliment).
Really appreciate you sharing yourself and your gift with us 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾
