Getting Your Learn On

 What I learned -

There are sometimes no good answers ... or perhaps better ... sometimes no answers that satisfy. Apparently our tendency as humans is to reframe the question to create more answers until we find one we like.

Sometimes you just don't know and there's nothing you can do about it.

Things happen for reasons.

Luck is real.

We all have blind spots and because we are in them, we can't see them, and can't even hear directions on how to get out.

Smart (my definition) people are good readers and writers (Sonny's terms). They can listen and they can lead.

We are all who we are - we are obvious. It takes skills to hide these things.

I know I have blind spots because I don't know how to connect what I learned to change what I do.

You have no idea how pertinent this is right now. Creating answers. Sometimes you can create answers that work for a while or in a special situation but don't work later. Sometimes you create what looks like an answer but what it really is, is a mask that does something but not what you think it's doing. When it finally becomes apparent that it is just a mask, then you have to take a good, long, hard look at yourself.

Connections are in the feel of
not doing;
Dancing in the moonlight,
Razor's edge tickling air.

(Hopefully, attempts at poetic expression will get better over time.)

"I don't know how to connect what I learned to change what I do."

Perhaps that's what the subconscious is for? Or meditation? (Same thing.)
