I'm "Back on 85th Street" - I'm referring to my first 3 years on the planet when I lived on a rather dark and narrow street in Cleveland, Ohio back in the late '20s.
It was East 85th Street between Central and Quincy Avenues where I slept in the "ice box" room - so called because there was no heating vent from the furnace to that room.
But in the early morning's chilly air of my bedroom I often had visions of the Future: what my Purpose in Life was and what my challenges would be.
I knew that I was born with some great Project to initiate but I didn't discover what that was until 40 years later when I founded The Tree of Life Bookstore & Education Center of Harlem, NY.
I say "back on 85th Street" referring to the fact that on September 8th, I began my 85th Trip around The SUN and would like nothing better than to share my "important discovery" with the World - which is how to make Life on Earth a Heaven rather than the Hell it may turn out to be.
My Kingdom for an Amanuensis!
* That is a man or woman who will help me put the story of my Life on paper, CD, DVD, Video or film.
* To help me catalogue the 7,000+ volumes that were available in the Aquarian Science Free Reading Room in the Tree of Life Bookstore of Harlem from 1969 - 1980;
* To help me make CD's and DVD's of the literally hundreds of cassettes and videos recorded during the past 40 years that helped expand our patronage from 2 students in 1969 to more than 15,000 per month when The Tree of Life Building was razed in 1980 bankrupting us.
* To help me share the hundreds of Radio Talk Show Interviews with the many authors and creative citizens we were priveleged to know.
Strange as it may seem, very few of the Media, U. S. Presidents, politicians, Congresspersons, Educators etc.. have taken any interest in our amazing discovery How to Regenerate America's inner cities!
