My brand new Avana insulated bottle was a complete disaster this morning. I filled it with hot coffee, and when I opened it, the pressure inside from the heat pushed hot coffee up the straw and all over my arm, my desk, and my lap. Be careful people, 2020 is not over yet!

Although I have many years of formal education, most of what I've learned has come from experimenting and trying to solve problems on my own. Once an idea for a project is set in my mind, it is all-consuming and one must learn everything possible about the subject on the way to the outcome. For learning is more than reading books and spoken word, it is hours of frustration, trial and error, and one sudden flash of insight when the world magically makes sense. It is during this moment when I am truely alive.
