The temperature outside this morning is -20 (F) or -29 ©. I was really excited yesterday when I thought I was going to bike to work in this weather. The challenge seemed formidable, and only comes along once a year. I was ready.

Unfortunately, HR just informed me I was a close contact to someone who tested positive, so I’m stuck working from home today to keep others safe. sigh I guess there is always next 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.
