I heard this song recently and remembered how much I like it—a tune from my youth by Supertramp on their hugely successful Crime of the Century album. “School” contains a catchy interlude and one of the most memorable extended solos of any song I know.
The tune also reminded me we should never stop learning, whether formally or informally. Tangential to that thought is the realization that “the older I get, the less I know.”
As a young girl, I felt differently though.
I thought I knew everything I needed to know by the time I was eighteen—the arrogance of youth.
Thankfully, age has tempered me. I hope I’m more tolerant and less judgmental of others, but more importantly, the only thing I know for certain is that I don’t know everything.
And where I used to think it was a weakness to not know, I now take it as an opportunity to learn something new.
Life is ever humbling, isn’t it?
Have a great week,
