A new school year begins, hopefully many neurons will form permanent connections in young brains and actual learning will occur. I recognize that learning is not foremost in the minds of so many eighteen year olds. However, that isn't entirely their fault. But I was once told that you are only living if you learn at least one new thing each day.
So, then, learning is not limited to the students. I get excited at the open pallete that presents itself this time of year. Who yet knows what life will be shaped by a word, an idea, a conversation? All learning asks is that "I" be active rather than passive.
Are you excited to learn a new "neuron connection" today?
