around schoolIt is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education. – Albert Einstein

At times it feels like this quote is only barely the case.  My teachings are generally held up to the measuring tape of others indoctrinations.  The trick is to look through your education to see what lies beyond it.  To do so is to be a visionary.

In this regard, most are far too nearsighted, evaluating the horizon in terms of that which is immediately at hand.  This is no disrespect to those who preceded us.  In fact, to not look through and beyond is to disrespect the value of what they have given.

Only the live tree bears fruit.
