My father opened a bottle of wine yesterday that he made in 1972. It had been sitting for all these years unopened, but when our family got together, we opened it and tasted it. It was … weird. Not bad, but not something I’d want a lot of either. And the fact that I’m still alive is 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.
