Day 14: Compassion

This is a photo of a mug rug that my spouse made for me when she thought I was going to get a new job. It turned out I did not get it, so I kept this safely tucked away. Eventually, I was offered a new position, so it will finally be used!

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.
