Dear Hannah,

my education began when I finished school.

reflection led to a lot of unlearning and relearning.

i realized that i was presented

facts disguised as knowledge,
opinions disguised as fact,
and a whole lot of memorized processes
disguised as problem solving.

it's all good, though - 'cause now I know
... that i don't know.

so i value divergent thinking ...
(seeing many answers to the same question)

... creativity ...
(capacity for original thought)

... reading

... writing

... counting

... and thinking

... as the keys to converting facts
into information
into knowledge
into wisdom
- and solutions to the problems of our existing state.

i have also learned to value biographies.

the stories from someone's life - and their wisdom
earned through lessons learned - inspire and ground me ...
