The point which I was trying to make, was that when the barrel is full, it is heavy and not empty, therefore is no empty space to produce echoes, as you roll it along , as would be the case with a empty barrel. It also follows, that a man of great learning, would be more ready to listen than to speak, because he or she may be quite learned, and therefore, be slow to speak and be quick to hear. It has been said, to listen is to learn. The journey of life continues. Take the best care of yourself and your people.
Again I send many oceans of blessings and self determination to African people everywhere.
ONE BLACK HEART ONE BLACK LOVE.
Baba Ras Marcus.
