Home Spun comic strip #494
This was from an actual conversation I had and that was the actual answer I gave. Learning is an ongoing process. It does not need a special building to occur. Every time I pick up a book, sit quietly in the yard or spend time with others, I am always learning new things. Education happens. I remember the year I taught religious education to third graders at my church. I told them that everyone had something to teach and we could learn from anyone. In fact, I could even learn things from all of them. They looked at me as if I had lost my mind. But I truly believe this. We each have our own abilities, skills, and knowledge to contribute to the world. The trick is finding others to listen and learn from us and to be open to the possibility of learning from others.
