Learn. What does that word convey to you? At first what comes to my mind is work. But that is because the word learn reminds me of school and I was never that fond of school. A lot of subjects I wasn’t interested in or found hard because my brain doesn’t work that way so it was work. Now when I really think about learn, I think about the vastness of all there is yet for me to learn and how I won’t even come close to learning 1/10th of what there is for me yet to learn. I have learned new hobbies and am still interested in pursuing more. I would like to learn more about photography and how to take better pictures. I recently saw a course listed for our community on water color painting and was interested in that. I have always wanted to learn to play the piano but found when I took the lessons that it was harder for me as an adult to try and conquer that. Not to mention a little costly and at the time I didn’t have the time to practice. Now I do have the practice time but not as much money for lessons. That may not be something I can return to. I’d love to learn how to write better and because of that desire am pursuing things like this 5 minute Friday exercise, subscribing to blogs about writing and actually writing my own blog. This is it. Maybe if I hang out among writer types long enough, something will rub off on me.
I suppose I should try to learn something useful like cooking, but naw, I’ll stick to the fun stuff.
