The education of me

"It is not from ourselves that we learn to be better than we are."
*Wendell Berry

For a few years now I have been hearing and reading about Kale chips and how awesome they were. And I was skeptical - acutally more to the truth I was a non-believer. That changed this week. I love them. They are delicious. I ate pretty much a whole head of kale in one morning. Yay!

Also, who knew that bean plants were self-pollinating. I didn't. Now I do. A very cool thing to learn.

And finally, not so much as something learned, but something remembered...."Take it on the Run" by REO Speedwagon is a totally well-crafted song that I will always love. Like I said, I may forget some of the time, but somehow it always makes its way back.

Hope you are enjoying your Sunday.


  1. I'm intrigued. I pretty much hear the word kale (or chard) and I tune out the rest. LA LA LA... I can't hear you... No thank you. Not interested. I don't care how healthy it is, I'll just turn my attention to this nice, roasted cauliflower or these sweet carrots now...

    I might take a taste if someone else has cooked it (just to be polite), but to actually go through the effort of cooking the stuff? (see above for my reaction.)


    1. Believe me when I say that no one was more surprised than me!
      I like kale and chard in stirfry and the like, but as chips??? Please!
      But it is true.

  2. I really like that quote. It is true that we can learn a lot from other people. We can learn from other people's mistakes too. I think that is a important thing that people don't realize. We don't just learn from our own mistakes. We learn from other people's mistakes too.
