It is a fundamental book for all who faced the difficulty of coping with belonging to different worlds, being torn by love and abuse, by family and healing, by the physical brutality of history learned and the ivory tower of a narrow story told at home, and that is true from the reverse side: the physical brutality of life ‘outside’ and the ivory tower of a library, the scars, bruises, the blood and sweat, and the touch of the cashmere fabric on the shoulders while writing at a desk with a bleeding heart open for surgery, for tearing down and building up the reality of our world. So much wisdom, heart, and life
Everyone should have the right for being present and being counted in a society from birth. Tara, just as her siblings, was about not to be officially registered until 9. Nor she could have an idea what ‘school’ was. Having that free spirit and open mind of hers she made it finally through education. Education I got and did and accomplished and even have been annoyed about sometimes for being it smth I was OUGHT to do: as my parents’ view was having it as the only ultimate way to find where one can thrive and evolve in their life. But Tara and her family were embracing a life close to nature, with its cycles, caresses and knockdowns.
In a community, where trust, help, cooperation, ‘natural’ division of labour and hierarchy, animals and plants, the wind and the sun were around. She knows what it means to live without media, and meaningless boredom covered with consumerism. She also knows what FEds are and being capable of in this ‘war’ within in and out of society. How vulnerable can one be as a child where no others or behated institutions around would give a hand, a shelter, or a way out from distorted to the extent of insane inner war fought by a parent, harming their family. Strength and commitment where being a child finding the ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ shall come from family. I owe all my respect to the Author of honesty who masters the art of words, emotions and cognition. I couldn’t go through this book without love, hope and healing. ffaludi julianna aludi julianna
