As I reflect on the many experiences my life has afforded me, I have come to realize that the older (or more “experienced”) I become, the more I have to learn from everyone and everything around me. Totally supporting the old adage, the more you know the more you realize you don’t know. But like many adages, having the actual experience seems to be needed for the learning to take place. So, despite knowing that you will have to have your own experiences to truly embrace your own learnings, I will share with you all my incredibly interesting life stories in hope that you will learn from them too. Perhaps you will take the same lessons away that I did, or make your own meaning from them. Perhaps you will decide that they are just funny little stories worth reading for the entertainment value. Or perhaps you will have more important things to do. I won’t know. Each posting will represent something I have learned, be it significant or minor, or, at the very least, something that gave me pause and got me thinking about something else in a new way.
I am a long time collector of ideas, quotes and concepts, and enjoy sharing these with others - especially when it creates a conversation.
