The time is ripe for looking back over the day, the week, the year, and trying to figure out where we have come from and where we are going to, for sifting through the things we have done and the things we have left undone for a clue to who we are and who, for better or worse, we are becoming.
But again and again we avoid the long thoughts, we cling to the present out of wariness of the past. And why not, after all?
We get confused, we need such escape as we can find. But there is a deeper need yet, I think, and that is the need, not all the time, surely, but from time to time, to enter that still room within us all where the past lives on as a part of the present, where the dead are alive again, where we are most alive ourselves to turnings and to where our journeys have brought us.
The name of the room is Remember, the room where with patience, with charity, with quietness of heart, we remember consciously to remember the lives we have lived.
Today we are Remember in Late Abiola Ajimobi who died on the 25th June, 2020, Today made him exactly three weeks since he died.

We should be remembered for the things we do,
The things we do are the most important things of all.
They are more important than what we say or what we look like.
The things we do outlast our mortality.
The things we do are like monuments that people build to honour heroes after they've died.
They're like the pyramids that the Egyptians built to honour the Pharaohs.
Only instead of being made out of stone, they're made out of the memories people have of you.
That's why your deeds are like your monuments, Built with memories instead of with stone.
I Pray that Late Abiola Ajimobi should continue to R.I.P, and May Allah Grant Him Eternal Rest. Amin
