I don’t know whether to feel happy or sad. Tonight my daughter said “I wish someone TP’d our house. Then I’d feel wanted.” Part of me agreed with her, but then my parent instinct immediately pulled me back to reality when I thought of how hard it would be to clean up.

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.
