A calling ...

"We are called to be architects of the future, not its victims."

"Make the world work for 100% of humanity in the shortest possible time through spontaneous cooperation without ecological offense or the disadvantage of anyone."

Opening line ...

"Poverty, the sea,
embracer of forlorn fates,
Can't stop a hero!"

I was envisioning the opening line of "the book" that the Hernandez twins have been pestering me to write, about a journey in education based on the Odyssey, as it flashed silently across a movie screen. Toyed with the idea of borrowing some of Steven's character traits and history in constructing the hero -- would be a nice allusion to James Joyce to use Stephen as the name of a hero.
