I think it’s safe to say that we’ve all been to school. Now a question. How many of us have gone to school for four years without planning to do so? Literally made a spontaneous decision to step on to an educational path and done so that day and at that precise moment?
If you’re new to my writings, I’ll quickly bring you up to speed. Up until January of this year (2019), I had been homeless most of the previous four years. Not only did I not have a home, but I had been forced to walk away from everything at the age of 47. Everything and everyone, gone.
When everything is stripped away, there are few options. So, what option did I go with? I enrolled in school for four years. I became a student of the universe (don’t laugh). And how does one get into this particular educational facility? Well, it’s invitation only. Before you run outside and begin talking to the sky requesting an application, keep this in mind. First you have to lose it all. Furthermore, in case you’re wondering, no it’s not worth it. And no I wouldn’t change a thing.
