The Outsiders

Tell us about the experience of being outside, looking in — however you’d like to interpret that.

I often feel like I am outside looking in.

Watching my students interact with undiscovered knowledge. I know that I am the one who began the process of investigating the new concepts, but I am always amazed at the inter-connections that are made as an unfamiliar concept begins to take shape.

Watching a mechanic work on my car. I am one of those people that make the car sounds to explain what is wrong with my vehicle. Thank goodness, I have almost always had a trusted hearing interpreter for a mechanic!

Watching a virtuoso at the piano. I had a great love for learning to play the piano before I fell in love with baseball. The skills were not there for me to have a future in either!

Watching a great athlete press on to complete an accomplishment never before mastered. I am more of a team player in sports. I love to compete. But the ability to compete is enough. I did not have the passion needed to pursue becoming a Number One at any sport.

I guess I love watching “A MASTER” at almost anything.

I am far more of a scatter-shot purist.

I have many loves.

Narrowing life down to only allow for one never seemed to be an option for me.

  1. I am with you. I enjoy anyone doing what they do well and without an excess of unnecessary movement. From typing to carving a turkey to making jewelry to washing dishes…I draw the line at surgery, however. Can’t take the blood!

I'd love to hear from you. It's nice to know other people are out there.
