this sums it up

Today I asked what you learned last week when I was in London.  We learn all sorts of things from our environment when we're open to the experience, and often they're more important than what we get in a course curriculum.  For example: on the plane I took a break from reading and writing to watch the movie Chef, and got a powerful lesson in creative integrity and passion:

"I get to touch people's lives with what I do.  And it keeps me going and I love it.  And I think if you give it a shot you might love it too."

You could apply this to the pursuit of anything meaningful.  It sums up how I feel about teaching and learning.  It's good to be back.
