Example text

In early January, I saw a notice in the newspaper soliciting singers to participate in a performance of the Mozart Requiem to benefit local interfaith AIDS ministries. I had not done anything like this in 25 years. Since Ali enjoyed the little Mozart she had heard, I offered to take her along, not to sing, but to sit next to me in the bass section during the half-hour rehearsals. For two weeks, she listened intently. The third week she asked if she could go sit with the altos. I told her that was fine with me, as long as she understood she would not be singing in the performance.

Four-year-old Meera heard it so often, she began to sing along, too. When Ali — all three feet eleven inches of her dressed in long black skirt, black shoes, and white blouse — walked through the nave of the church between two much taller altos with blue-rinsed hair to take her place in the front row of singers, there was quite a stir among the 400 people present. It was a bit nerve-wracking for me, standing in the back row and trying to sneak an anxious peek down to the front. People would observe her every move.

As learning is the primary means by which individuals and communities adapt, cultivating the freedom to learn is in my judgment among the best mechanisms to ensure both personal satisfaction and community and species survival. The joy and power of learning, freely exercised, is one of very few real alternatives to an ecologically devastating cult of consumerism — a fundamental belief that happiness or understanding can be purchased like a 4X4, whereby, as the television commercial promises, one is “free” to go where one pleases regardless of environmental consequences — and to equally destructive power relationships among individuals or among nations.
