Today I began a new commute to my place of work. There was rain in the forecast for this afternoon, but when I left work, the rain mysteriously stopped for 30 minutes, allowing me to bike home. Small wins like these make life enjoyable!

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.
