And sometimes, try as one may, it's not to be found.

Ron w13, Or

The grass does grow, as also the thoughts within man, guided by its own stars and planets. Our flag, and the stars above in blue. Each for a state, many see them, but few understand their function. We do not try and teach, but plant seed in the garden of the mind. Hoping perhaps, living long enough. Behold the fruit of understanding.

Rings true for me as a student and as a 'teacher' when home-schooling our children.  "What shall we learn today?"  I certainly don't think I can teach anyone anything, unless they ask for it  there is no changing a fixed mind.
