My wife and my son are collaborating on dinner this evening. I keep hearing things like “Where do we keep the ____?” A few minutes ago it was an egg. Then it was garlic. Then it was rice vinegar. Then Allspice and sesame oil. I have no idea what they are making, but I’m sure it will taste good.

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.
