DIALOGUE AND DISCUSSION ON EDUCATION, ENVIRONMENT AND RACE
“Jonathan Seagull spent the rest of his days alone, but he flew way out beyond the far cliffs. His one sorrow was not solitude, it was that other gulls refused to believe the glory of flight that awaited them; they refused to open their eyes and see. What he had hoped for the flock he now gained for himself alone; he learned to fly and was not sorry for the price he had paid. They came in the evening then, and found Jonathan gliding peaceful and alone through his beloved sky.”
I chose these passages because I recall times growing up and thinking I was alone with my perceptions, views and questions. Feeling a little different I wondered why others didn't seem to want to explore or just seemed content with going along to get along. I've been called a loner, anti-social and have even been asked if I hate people. I don't hate people but I have been introduced to terms such as humanoids or zombies, now these types of “people” I can live peacefully without. I do enjoy solitude enough to think, reflect, recharge, search for answers and I have a greater understanding for the saying the road less traveled is a lonely one. For what seems like just a few months, I have been looking in quite a few rabbit holes looking for answers and/or some understanding. It has been frustrating at times, especially when I wanted to share what appears to be another piece of the puzzle or missing link but, I soon realized the flock is quick to respond with predictable responses. One day while out practicing my new flying techniques I happen to glance over and I see that I am not alone! I am in flight with others who have been learning and teaching themselves as well. No limits!
Adisa---I SEE YOU!!!
There is truly more to life then just living. That damn boat is the construct it's so easy to get caught up.
It appears that the book is no longer here---get in touch with Mr. Black and he will put you in touch with a way to get the work.
