While on a walk yesterday evening, I came to the realization that those things we thought were going to make our lives more efficient are actually making our lives more complicated. Phone calls don’t need to be returned instantly. Take time to visit someone in person. And write a real letter instead of an email.

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.
