Lifelong learners

“Taking” lessons. What an accurate and horrible term. […] Learning is different. Learning is something we get to do, it’s a dance, an embrace, a chance to turn on some lights.*
(Seth Godin)

Just about everything important in our lives will have been gained through a degree of difficulty demanding our presence, dexterity, persistence, time and love.

We discover life is artistic and we want more:

Art isn’t painting or canvas or prettiness. Art is work that matters. Art is the work we do because we must.**

Hard as a noun is overtaken by hard as a verb.

(*From Seth Godin’s blog: “Taking” lessons.)
(**From Seth Godin’s blog: A useful definition of art.)
