Poem: “Do you see the changes music makes to the dreamers”

Do you see the changes music makes to the dreamers,
Infected the subconscience,
Built the minds of the givers,

What happened to the visionaries,
I a world that no longer cares,
A modest poor man of integrity,
Re-appears with words to share,

But why would you listen to him,
Never heard his kind before,
A prophet in the shadows,
Of his kind the world needs more,

The comfortably numb generation,
Has woken and found a new,

He’ll change your heart forever,
with one word if he can,
Lost under the rubble of a humble happy man,

But Sixto smiles and explains,
I’m building it, one piece, one day, one heart at a time.
Then I’ll Slip Away,
And leave this life with a smile

– Maddison Morgan

Searching for Sugar Man or success of a different kind – Unschooling NYC

In discussions around education, we talk a lot about success. Often we talk in terms of monetary success (usually referred to as ‘financial security’ which makes it sound less greedy). Less often we refer to success in terms of happiness, fulfillment, spirituality or family; it is assumed, perhaps, that career and financial success inevitably lead to the other types of success.

Of course a lot of financially successful people are miserable in their personal lives, and on the other hand it is more difficult to appreciate the beauty of nature when you are busy wondering where your next meal will come from.

Ideas of what constitutes personal and/or financial success are so varied and individual in nature that it is difficult to speak of it in broad terms, and one of the reasons I abhor discussions in which someone tries to insist that without a 4 year degree, success is forever out of reach.
