Learning

I am learning all the time. The tombstone will be my diploma.

My best teachers have been the ones who didn't teach by rote, but by challenging my curiosity so that I went further into the subject, kept on exploring and discovering new paths. Also they haven't always been the ones with degrees. They're from the large variety of people I've encountered casually or intimately through my lifetime so far. The best have taught me and I paraphrase, "to learn to breath into the moment and not be afraid, not look away" from the opportunity that I'm being given.

Today I spent some time on lunch with some British import digital photography magazines working through CD tutorials. The theme was working with adjustment layers and masks. These seemed beyond my grasp in past months. As the saying goes when the student is ready... Through the tutorials I broke through another level of Photoshop and was able to come home to apply this successfully. It is a quiet joy/feeling of accomplishment and I am humbled that on this journey of life that I am blessed with the opportunities to continue to grow and learn from so many others.
