People or Things And Places? – Discussing In Dependence by Sarah Ladipo Mayinka February 3, 2018 – Posted in: In Dependence – Tags: African Literature, Book Club, History, Ideas, Kawe Africa, Lagos, Letters, Love, Nigeria, Philosophy, Race, Sarah Ladipo Mayinka
In Dependence is a book of philosophy and ideas – partly. As it is also a book about race, love and history.
Tayo and Vanessa did a whole lot of letter writing and in these letters, they discussed Nigeria, family, philosophy and life.
In one of the letters, Tayo talked about the shift he was experiencing. He was suddenly moving towards things and places rather than humans, people – his family.
Like Tayo Ajayi, do you have a cultural tendency to gravitate towards other people rather than towards things and places? Where things are ideas and places are memories of places and destinations yet to be visited?
Things = Ideas
Places = Memories of Places and destinations yet to be visited.
Would love to hear your opinion.
