When fall comes, I enjoy taking a look at my life and trying to organize things. I like to make a few subtle changes. Enough to make things feel new again, but not enough to disrupt my established routines. It feels like a fresh start to another year.

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.
