"Learning to live and living to learn"
Of late I have been watching a lot of “how to” tutorials on YouTube and I am amazed at what other people can do. For the past 30 years at least, I have been making my way through life thinking that I was perfect and a master at everything I do.
But, with the help of YouTube, I have come to realize that I know “diddly-squat” about anything.
For instance, before I succumbed to the ravages of age and the world of XXXL, I used to think I was a good dancer. I thought I could connect with the rhythm and, with a few light ales inside me, could execute a respectable twirl and jazz-hands in sync to the beat. But, alas, I was laboring under a misapprehension.
I am mesmerized by the dance routines on YouTube. These amateurs are executing routines that, in my day, could only be experienced under the canopy of a circus tent.
There are YouTube tutorials for absolutely everything. Just now I typed in “How to build a spaceship” and I am spoilt for choice. So, as I set about broadening my horizons further and prepare myself for interstellar travel, I challenge you, dear reader, to explore your own new frontiers and get busy learning more about yourself and others.
