This week Jamie asks us:

“The best thing for being sad," replied Merlin, beginning to puff and blow, "is to learn something. That's the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then — to learn. Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting. Learning is the only thing for you. Look what a lot of things there are to learn.” - T.H. White "The Once and Future King"
I wish to learn to draw and paint and embrace my creative side without my inner critic running amuck. I wish to learn new languages and how to cook and to continue to learn to be a better writer. I wish to learn to love myself as I am, but also learn that change is possible if I really want it. I wish to learn that life is what we make of it and to truly believe that I am capable of whatever I aspire to.
