As in when you want something very much it is often very
difficult to attain. Your very longing stands in the way of
actually achieving it. Then when you let go of your desire
you find that what you wanted is now possible.

Strange that that should be the case. I wonder how logic
would explain that one.

I do wonder if the want is sufficient in the child. It
helps when the environment is good also. And the company.

Is the environment good at a Sudbury School? How about the
company? Is it important?
