learning to fly

“He who would learn to fly one day must first learn to stand and walk and run and climb and dance; one cannot fly into flying.”

Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900);
scholar, writer, philosopher

today i finally handed in my godamn fucking 3000…. well, 2600 very well chosen word essay. i did very forcefully but politely tell the admin lady how i feel about the lack of communication from this supposedly world class university….big giant sigh~~~~

i guess according to the quote above that could be considered the walk…. possibly run phase….

now i am moving on to the next level, climbing and dancing~~~~~

 because in less than 2 weeks i will be speaking before an international medical audience of unknown size and 2 weeks from thursday i will be speaking in front of a known audience of 80 something  northern england critical care professionals….

if i survive and am actually able to get coherent words out, i will be one step away from flying!

    • yeah but it’s the northerners part that’s scary…early in the project they critisized the original american researcher that spoke saying she was “too evangelical”
      a doctor said we don’t need that-we’re from the north of england!!

      just tell us what to do and we’ll do it!

      so, i’ll stick to the facts and curb my accent…

  1. You”ll do fine, I remember your first stage performance. With 6 year old wings of down, you played “The Mother of God” in the Christmas program at Central School. So just fluff up those wings and FLY.
