Yes…this is the question now. Not who, why, when, how, whatever…just, what. What can I learn to better myself? I find it hard whenever I think…then when I don’t think, the answers seem to come easier. I think that is why I like absorbing information that has nothing to do with anything. Like how many times a doorbell rings before somebody answers it. Or, how long it takes somebody pulling out of a parking space,to realize they will almost never get out of that spot.
I like thinking in time, not numbers, and even words kind of seem odd. I think that is because time seems so intangible. It makes people want to hold on to it more. Also, people seem to crave time even more than money, a thing hard to believe in a culture that is dedicated to making it.
So, back to the beginning: what to learn? Maybe one thing. Maybe everything. I think that is how it starts. You learn one thing, then a whole bunch of things fall into place. But you still have to go back to that one thing. It’s like a dot in the middle of a painting. You see it and suddenly the painting takes on a whole new meaning, because you understand that everything came from that one, single point. All of the colors and patterns are inside that dot, swirling and pulsing like a mini-sun.
Okay, I’ve gotten off topic. But here is my point: learning is what you make of it. If it works for you, but more importantly, if you HAVE FUN doing it, you are learning.
