Education is the movement from darkness to light ~ Allan Bloom
is one of the United Nations 17 sustainable development goals. It ensures that the people on the planet obtain the hard skills in order to gain a favorable literate position in the world- securing education at an early age.

....the love for all things natural, nature, plant.
....living a minuscule memorable childhood life on a small bayside, on a small island in the Caribbean sea named ballast bay and cane garden bay ocean view that gave a sense of place in the world and what is truly meaningful.
... the modern day minimalist culture framed from those years long ago with the message to embrace the simple, rustic, antiquity coal pot, one-room dwelling, oil lamp, three stone, maiden apple bush that tamed heat rash, and lantern, torchlight, mortar pestle, brick oven, stone-jacks play, corned meat on fence, bed lodgings, cocoa tea and bang bang, the round aluminum tub, and the gut where you bathe naked free.
.....a four-year-old child’s solo struts up the hill, down and around a two-mile stretch to run a grocery errand for mami, next bay over, returning Unharmed with no threat of danger. the village raises the children
.... mule ride transportation to carrot bay, or just the usual walk where you have to go
...... carrying water, from standpipe on top of the head, a daily chore, but child’s play racing with water in your bucket with friends and not spilling any
......unconventional village parent-upbringing, all looks after the child
.....the dogon who fuel our thoughts about the larger context of a bush. The indigenous Dogon of Mali revere bush yet fears it. There exist the contrast of village experience, the city experience, the experience of habituating a dwelling and then bush. Bush is positive yet negative.

Imagine a world in which people have control over their own realities
A world where people are co-creators of their everyday existence
A place where people are nurtured from young to tap into their own spiritual gifts
And develop them as they grow into adulthood
Imagine a place where knowing yourself and developing your own gifts are your focus of attention
Not external ideals and concepts to believe in
Always being taught that everything you need to know already exists inside you
And your mission is to remember these vital teachings
Imagine growing up in a place where you are encouraged to develop your own divinity
A place which allows you to see what you are capable of
Surrounded by communities that recognise that everyone is here to fulfil their own unique purpose
And supports those along their spiritual paths
Imagine a place where the spiritual world plays as much importance as the physical world
A place where people openly acknowledge and respect the unseen forces
And continually work to maintain a spiritual balance in their lives
Understanding that all aspects of creation are equally important, each with their own unique characteristics
Imagine a world where nature is respected and revered for all its life-giving properties
A place where the rivers are pure, the air is clean and the foods are natural
A world where the nature spirits live in harmony with the population
And a balanced symbiotic relationship exists among the two
Imagine you didn’t have to imagine…
