Sheikh Jammeh

“I think settling is a woefully unexceptional way to live. But it takes a strong sense of knowing yourself and what you value, to be genuinely comfortable with the shape of things; and it's hard to get there, especially when you wake up and go to sleep to a slew of artificial mediums trying to tell you who you should be or what you should do. But look at us, we out here thriving."

Sheikh is always warm. He speaks in a way that is validating - so much so that my problems begin to solve themselves as quickly as they are voiced. Can't find Sheikh? He's the one with the pull-on winter jacket. And yes, I always make sure to point out how ridiculous it is. The coolest cat, Sheikh Jammeh has all the answers.
