Possibility. Every thought and action have possibility. Bringing people together with good intentions to openly share ideas, visions and experiences to peacefully and ethically shape possibility into actuality to better the world, including the human condition – that is the inherent elegance of “education.” It is the savoring of the elegance of education that I strive to foster while guiding myself and liaising with others interested in journeying along the path of life-long inquiry. Collaboration with others prompts me to motivate myself and others to engage in cycles of sincere reflection, productive and focused individual/group activity, meaningful analysis and accurate evaluation. The result of the intended positive transformation of oneself and the group is to consider how such transformation can be of tangible benefit to the wider world along with realizing the importance of goal setting, revision and achievement. Observe, think, conceptualize, listen, speak, and do to come to a temporary understanding; recycle this process to keep growing, improving, innovating to enhance, explain, fix, solve, and/or go beyond matters encountered throughout life in a variety of contexts with varying degrees of ease as well as difficulty.
