However, it was not the end of the salvage. Almost a week of really bad weather delayed everything. The salvage crew were marooned on the Al Ahood, having to sleep in the fo'c'sle. We supplied food over the stern from the Sa/vanguard.

This is the gritty story of one man's lifelong education in the school of hard knocks, as his journey took him from Harlem to the Marines, the Ivy League, and a career as a controversial writer, teacher, and economist in government and private industry. It is also the story of the dramatically changing times in which this personal odyssey took place. The vignettes of the people and places that made an impression on Thomas Sowell at various stages of his life range from the poor and the powerless to the mighty and the wealthy, from a home for homeless boys to the White House, as well as ranging across the United States and around the world. It also includes Sowell's startling discovery of his own origins during his teenage years. If the child is father to the man, this memoir shows the characteristics that have become familiar in the public figure known as Thomas Sowell already present in an obscure little boy born in poverty in the Jim Crow South during the Great Depression and growing up in Harlem. His marching to his own drummer, his disregard of what others say or think, even his battles with editors who attempt to change what he has written, are all there in childhood. More than a story of the life of Sowell himself, this is also a story of the people who gave him their help, their support, and their loyalty, as well as those who demonized him and knifed him in the back. It is a story not just of one life, but of life in general, with all its exhilaration and pain.

The author looks at race relations when he was growing up in Africa and his experiences in the United States. He grew up when his home country was under colonial rule. He later lived for many years in another country, the United States, that was also dominated by whites. He examines similarities between the two white-dominated societies and looks at how life was for non-whites in his home country during those years. It is a work of comparative analysis in terms of race relations and draws heavily on the author's personal experience. He not only addresses the subject from a personal perspective but also in the broader context of society as a whole. A lot of what he has written is based on what he has observed and experienced through the years, amounting to a personal journey through life in colonial Africa and in the United States. He also looks at his life with African Americans including those who were members of an organisation that sponsored African students to study in the United States. He was one of those sponsored by the organisation. His reflections on race relations have been partly shaped by the existence of racism in the United States as a major problem in contemporary times. The malignancy of racism in the United States was underscored by massive protests across the country by people of all races – the largest since the civil rights movement – following the brutal murder of a black man, George Floyd, by a white police officer in May 2020, an execution that sent shock waves round the globe where there were also protests in many countries in support of racial equality in America; protests the author says could have been the beginning of the second civil rights movement. Never before had so many whites in every city and every state participated in such demonstrations alongside blacks demanding racial justice. And never before had such demonstrations been organised and carried on, on sustained basis, throughout the country for several months. The status of black people in the United States with whom he interacted for many years, prospects for racial harmony and reconciliation and the quest for racial justice are some of the subjects he has addressed in the book, drawing on his experiences as someone who has firsthand knowledge of the subject because of what he went through when he was growing up as a colonial subject in Africa and when he lived in the United States as someone who was not spared the agony and the anguish of being a victim of racism. It is an odyssey that is reflected in the lives of many other people, making the book more than just an account of the experiences of the author alone. It is a reflection of other lives as well, especially of those whose collective identity is also shared by the author.

Doorway to Illuminations A strange kind of energy was vibrating and whirling through my soul in the early hours of 1 March 2007, raising my normal body frequency. An unusual heat shot up through my body and I was aware of a strange heartbeat. I felt as if I were dying or having a heart attack and I was terrified as no one else was with me. The time was 3 am. Instead of reaching for a glass of water I grabbed a pen and writing pad and sat up in my bed, without consciously exercising my mind. The pen kept writing and scribbling then I started to hear certain words and phrases which I began to repeat out loud. It seemed as if hours and hours had passed and by this time I was so stiff that I could feel pain shooting up my spine. By now I was alert, looking at the piles of paper filled with my scribbling. I was about to collapse so I decided to go and make myself a cup of tea and wash my face. I felt normal again but to my astonishment I discovered that the time was by now 10 am! How on earth had I sat there all those hours without moving! I looked at everything I had written. I couldnt believe it. I had never had any interest at any time in my life in language or poetry, and had never been able to produce fine words or phrases. Yet I had managed to produce an extraordinary poem. My mind was in disbelief. I was so tired and utterly baffled. The next day all my friends and family were shocked at how such a powerful poem had come out of someone like me as I wasnt even born in this country. After a week, another poem came. I was given these two poems for my life story book. I asked whoever was around one night: why and how and who? I remembered that Id had a dream in November 2006 in which my father, who passed away in 2003, told me that a special gift would be given to me and for serving humanity! That was the start of the series of poems which I began writing in March 2007. Up to the present time still more poems have been coming through: I currently have a total of over 40 poems all a gift for humanity. I was instructed to do no more works with individuals but that instead I would need to put my new power and psychic energy to more constructive use for the millions who are in turmoil and in grief and sorrow with all their complications and emotional love traps and more of the dark time which all of us have to go through at some stage of this decaying life. I was also told that it is not my subconscious mind as psychology explains to us: this is a fancy word they use, yet where does that subconscious reside? Call it whatever you like it is not important as its the result which counts: the truth of our evolved spirit within the soul energy which gives us solutions happiness, understanding and unseen intelligence and the iron hand which pulls us out of the black hole of ordinary life with its awesome delusions and earthly domesticated matter It is very important to remember because you are free from every earthly conditioning: you have received a gift. The free spirit is an evolved, illuminated being and progressed mind though not intellectually cultured. That message will be carried with every second I breathe and I shall bring it and give it to all humans who will search one day to discover who they are and why we are born and what the true goal is, but with a free mind and heart. Here are the collection of that gifts of inspiration which I received from the higher being which is far wiser and more intelligent than any human born and any ordinary intellect. Read on and think. We have a collection of poems dictated by the Illuminators (the Emperor of the Soul). You can order it if you want to read them. Many thanks for your time to read the true words of my heart. Under the name of : The Odyssey of the Souls Written by psychic Scheherazade Al Tellawy through trace and altered consciousness
