Our sixth Minnesota state park hike was completed yesterday. This time it was Afton State Park. Since the temperature was in the 50’s, the park was quite busy. Half of the hiking trail was paved, and the other half ran along the closed ski area, which will likely be filled in a month or so!

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.
