Climbing out the Bucket

"Don't expect to build up the weak by pulling down the strong"
                                                                         Calvin Coolidge.
Aunty Daizy sat us down next to her kitchen. I was 16, almost the same age as the girls who sat there with me. at the heart of Kojwach village. Nothing thrilled us than to listen to her. and so she told us of the Lobsters, big and small. How it took determination to catch them.....
                    ".........but once you catch them, it is very easy to keep them in one place while still alive. Put them in a bucket, and three days on you will still find them there......"

adopting a lobster is what eats us as men and women. envying the progress of another and pulling them down. Lobsters never leave the bucket because they pull each other back. And when you learn best how to do this, you don't develop, grow or succeed. you never get out of the bucket.
