It always amazes me how fast this time of year goes by. I blink, and we are in June. But this year will be different, I tell myself. I’ll enjoy the melting snow and new flowers. I’ll pay more attention to the buds on the trees. And I won’t let life pass me by.

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.
