Absolutes? Absolutely Not!


Absolute can be defined as "expressing finality with no implication of possible change;" that which is "pure, perfect, or complete."

As I grow older, I realize that there are few absolutes in life - and this is a good thing. Without absolutes, there is always the possibility of new ideas, deeper understanding, and broader knowledge.

Mentors are simultaneously mentees; students and teachers can become co-learners; old dogs might acquire new tricks.

Everything becomes a work in progress. The journey is the destination.

Gwyneth,

We are simultaneously leaders & followers, innovators & adapters; co-creators, complementary angles! Who knew I had a younger, hipper twin...with red hair!
