One afternoon, when Mr. Sheridan took two young Chinese couples out for a surf lesson in Sanya, he got an unusual request from one of the women. “Can I take this umbrella with me onto the surfboard?” she asked.

But he did admire her effort. He said, “Why not have it both ways?”

Daughters of our Suns

This post is about the stories of four girls, young women actually, but I would rather describe them as girls because it was as girls that their lives were hampered. It was as girls their growth, self-awareness, self-exploration was arrested. In having these experiences they are reclaiming their lost childhood, experiencing themselves as God and evolution intended they should. A great deal of our learning and self-discovery comes from our bodies' interaction with nature, not just from social interaction, which in their case has been the source of a lot of unhappiness.

When we consider the possibility of life on the planets of other star systems besides ours, one thing is for certain. All stars give off UV radiation, and if we are to maintain the same form as we have on this planet, ie with hairless thin skins, then we will need our melanin as much on them as we need it on this planet.
