I learned that I could run six miles :D A little sore, but not bad for 45. :grin:
Great work Micheal! I have 5 km at some point in my future... half of what you're celebrating today.

~n.
You'll get there nollaig. :D I also learned that what I learned in school was correct: Before and after you excersise, STRETCH, Warm up and cool down. :D Well what do you know.....it still works.... :whistle: :-)

That a new workout routine is shining a laser at all of the areas where I've grown soft.

Separately: lifting and carrying a kayak will help you learn that you need to do work on your core (two pulled muscles - ouch!). :wow:

I learned that Habitat for Humanity not only builds homes for those in need, but also accepts donations of household goods to give to those who without resources.

Lots... probably a little overload actually, about thermodynamics.

I have an assignment to write, due for Tuesday, and did I stick to my study schedule? Yeah, like hell I did... last minute rush as usual!

So, the most important thing I learned today - plan ahead, manage your time, succeed... there's a triad there somewhere! :D

Sometimes two frantic people in a child's doctor appointment are more productive than one.

I learned that my deceased brother's long-lost daughter (adopted to another family when he was a teen) wants to meet her grandmother, who is almost 97-years-old and almost didn't make it out of the hospital this week. It is such a gift to finally find her, and learn she has a son, and that they are good people who very much want to know their family. So now we are arranging for them to meet! Very exciting.

That boars and especially wild sows with young boars don't attack you when you just sit still and silently and are smalle than them (for sitting..lol). :)

And that most animals in the forest come close and trust you when you respect their life: not making noises, walking carefully, sit still. :)

I learned that my neighbor who has never mentioned any interests is a real estate broker in retirement, and he gave me good advice about painting the trim on our house.

Labradorite may also be used to honor Cerridwen, the Welsh Goddess of Inspiration and Knowledge. She rules the gifts of prophecy and magic, and powers death and rebirth. She is the guardian of spiritual transformation.

I learned so much this weekend at the Art of Celebrancy-weekend with PCG and JJ Middleway... but most of all these two things:

- All spiritual paths can be defined as "sort yourself out and then do something useful with your life"

- We don't celebrate enough the simple joys and precious passing moments of life.
Three sounds one should treasure:
the whisper of the wind through the leaves
the songs of one's heart
the callings of the universe
