Thankfully hard knocks and problems are not the only things that help you keep learning. I really enjoy expanding my horizons (mine seem to expand every time I eat). Someone posted some pictures, I think on G+, of some awesome wire art. I was impressed and inspired as well. While I don’t expect to get anywhere near as good as the artist I saw I was motivated to give it a try. I tried a little today with mixed results and I hope to display some photos later next week.
Our education should never stop until we either know everything or we are not capable of learning any more.
