Day four with no functional air conditioner. Today will be the 13th day above 90 degrees. I no longer have to make the bed because sheets are pointless. Ice cream has become a part of every dinner. And we no longer have to preheat our oven.

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.
