Over the years, I realized
School and learning was not the same thing.
While I grew to love learning
Often school was dull and repetitious.
School is a preparation for life.
Learning is what life is about.
The other day I was in our local post office, purchasing some stamps. As I made payment, I noticed a package behind the counter that was wrapped in plain brown paper, according to Post Office Regulation; and remarked to the Post Master, who knows just about everyone in our small town, what a great, clean and precise job that person did folding and wrapping. I couldn’t do as good, even when I try; which I usually do. I make my cut-up brown bag, paper package, as neat as possible. I fold all the edges, neatly holding them down with clear plastic tape; trying to match and fold sides, like a Christmas present, evenly, with a creased edge, straight line on each seam. My best effort, nothing like the one I saw before me. To me, this package was a real work of art and craftsmanship.
