“The writer's curse is that even in solitude, no matter its duration, he never grows lonely or bored.”
"But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal". Saint Paul
“Every man has a specific skill, whether it is discovered or not, that more readily and naturally comes to him than it would to another, and his own should be sought and polished. He excels best in his niche - originality loses its authenticity in one's efforts to obtain originality.”
Upon reconsideration, I must admit this particular subject is much larger than I first imagined. The problem lies in the difficulty of determining who may be a "tomorrow person" and who may not. And beyond that, can one person identify another who has characteristics of one who could be categorized as a "tomorrow person".
Could it be nature vs nurture? Could it be found in ones DNA or genes (Genes are actually a subset of a cell's DNA. While all of your genes are made of DNA, your entire DNA is not composed of genes. In fact, less than two percent of a person's DNA represents active genes! The rest of the DNA seems to be involved mediating how the genes are expressed.)? Is it biological or the action of the mixture of Chemistry within a person? Good questions all. The question that I started out to ask "What makes a person act, behave, or interact with others the way that they do?" Or to put it another and more personal way. "Who am I?" And why do things effect me in the way that they do?
I am going to suggest that certain people not only would be considered "Tomorrow people" not necessarily for their intelligence, or their genes, DNA, but something more intangible. What is the source of our existence? Something that is intangible, that derives from Spirit...Call it God or call it nature - whatever label you use to define it, IT is absolute. The absolute is not subject to change
There are intangible realities which float near us, formless and without words; realities which no one has thought out, and which are excluded for lack of interpreters.
These next people are those that I call interpreters of what "Tomorrow people are to become. Stay with me a bit longer and I trust all will become clear.
This first person that I want to introduce to us is certainly unique. Coming from Australia this woman is in her own right an accomplished artist but she is far more than that. My wife introduced me in a round about way to Jodi, who also suffers from this devastating and crippling disease not recognized by most of the world’s doctors. And yet there are more than a million of theses people, men, women and yes even children who go unnoticed. Unnoticed by health care providers, family and friends in all but a few cases. Jodi Bassett, who was afflicted with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis M.E. at the age of 19. Now 38, Jodi is the webmistress of the most comprehensive site on all aspects of M.E., www.hfme.org "Fighting for recognition of M.E. and patients to be accorded the same basic human rights as those with similar neurological diseases such as M.S." author of a definitive book about caring for patients with M.E., an amazingly talented artist, and an activist for M.E. awareness All her writing, artwork and videos are done from her bed as she has been primarily bedfast for a number of years. And yet Jodi is a fierce advocate for all of those who suffer with this little know (or cared about) disease. Truly a "tomorrow person" in her own right!
Think about this dynamic woman and I’ll get back to you with the next Candidate.
