Diversity

I did a series of presentations about my parents a couple of weeks ago at Lowndes High School.

After one of them, Joey Slater, a student there, told me about a project he was doing photographing people making signs and displaying them. The project was called "Diversity," and he wanted me to make a sign he could film and add to his project.

I said I would be happy to.

Good for you, John. The best part of working with youngsters is that although you may give them sometimes dubious benefits of your experiences, they return their youthful exuberance, like small doses of an exhilir.

There is no truth. Even the truth that there is no truth is not true. Language can not be used to arrive at certainty, so disregard this statement. We must get beyond language, but not by discussing it. Postmodernist writers have given the lie to truth and language, so don't read what they say. We have to read between the lines, in the blank spaces, where nothing is written, even though it may be difficult to read nothing and blank spaces. That's the challenge of the postmodern world. Don't read or you'll be delayed in reaching the realization that there's no truth or certainty, and what could be worse than to be late reaching a destination that doesn't exist? Just be, but don't be something because that would be too definite, and we know the universe is ruled by uncertainty. If you feel yourself starting to become something, stop or it may be too late, even though it doesn't matter.
