this is my little blog in this big crazy ass world. i don't use caps, hope that doesn't bother you.
i am a freelance photog residing in oakland, ca at the moment. i have a deep love for music, art, and spirituality. my yoruba name is "amari", my gov't name is r. willis. i chose my yoruba name because it can mean "teacher, creator, seeker of knowledge".
"Yorubas take names seriously because they believe that people live out the meanings of their names. As such, Yoruba people put considerable effort into naming a baby."
"The Yoruba are said to be religious people, but they are also pragmatic and tolerant about their religious differences. Whilst many profess the Yoruba school of thought; many profess other faiths e.g Christianity, Islam, Budhism, Hinduism e.t.c."
