I know that I have the power to jump off this cliff and survive, but whether Iíll learn to fly or drop into the ocean at the bottom and swim hasnít been determined. My life feels as open as it ever has since my birth; more so. I emerged into this life, took a look around, sighed and slumped into unconsciousness. How boring. This is better.

Issues around poverty go way back. My childhood was poor. We used to wake in the morning in the winter to find the drinking water in the bucket by the stove had frozen over.
