When the books are closed, the backpacks zipped and the florescent classroom lights turned off…are we done? Have we learned all that we need? Of course not, you know that, I know that, but just the same I have to remind myself of this. It’s all a bit overwhelming. The bigger you get, the bigger the world gets. It expands with you, just enough so that you can never quite reach the edge, that’s the beauty of it all I suppose.
I consider myself to be very in tune with my shortcomings as a human being. It is, my principal failing. Always seeing the successes of others as failings in myself. It’s idiotic, I know, and sometimes it seems as though I will just never get it. But I do and I know there is a lesson to be learned from everything and especially from everyone.
Luckily I’ve been granted a vast array of excellent friends over the years, amazing characters who have for one, been gracious enough to put up with me, miserable cuss that I am, and have taught me one hell of a lot about life.
