My car has finally be repaired. I was having problems with the steering, which was somewhat freaky. It still drove, but there was clearly something wrong. However, I have been living without it for the past few days, and it occurs to me that I could save a lot of money if I just stopped driving.

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.
