Have you ever thought how much real learning is like opening an exciting Christmas present and how “education” is like being made to take a dose of medicine?
Of course there are those who were fortunate enough to have fantastic teachers that provided those “present” moments.
Most of my education, I am sad to say, was about marking time between doses!
Most of May has been dedicated to making possible a trip to Greece for my daughter and her husband by keeping her three boys, ages 5, 7 and 11.
So no blogs. Sorry. It’s amazing how delicately we balance on a knife edge of robust, creative life and frazzled, tattered listlessness.
Those kids taught me a lot, as usual. Insights gained will eventually be shared.
