"Education should prepare people not just to earn a living but to live a life--a creative, humane and sensitive life."--Charles Silberman
Decades (or eons) ago, I graduated from college with a degree in sociology, with a minor in psychology. Three days later, I was married. Our first baby came along ten months after Larry's and my marriage. We decided that I was needed at home more than I would ever be needed at the workplace.
What does this little recap have to do with the above quote? It's easy. I never earned a living with my degree. And some wondered why I didn't, if I had wasted my education. I like to think that the learning I did in college and beyond prepared me to "live a life."
Am I always creative, humane and sensitive? No. But I try to be upon occasion. I try to find ways to create, to give, to understand. This blog is one of those ways.
Joy for today: using what I learned.
