The more I learn, the more I don’t know

Working on today’s post, I was amused (again) by how two previously written drafts started merging into one. And then there was the third one, creeping in entirely uninvited.

It was starting to get messy, and my post was getting bigger than I could handle. Not just longer, but bigger, like in-my-head bigger.

In an attempt to add a little “color” to the story, I did a bit of fact-checking. And that’s when it all blew up — a can of worms with a whole new set of questions and more to learn. Always, more to learn.

So I’m putting that post down for a nap. It’ll come out to play when the time is right. Until then, I’m done.

p.s. One of the best parts of #YourTurnChallenge – along with the great community – is how much we are growing through the process. Our desire to explore, ask more questions – it’s actually overwhelming some days. But once we step back and look at what we’re learning through new eyes…it’s a beautiful thing.

  1. I’ve had Salukis since 1972. I’ve studied them, shown them, judged them, kept them as a major part of my life. And I feel I know less about them now than I did forty years ago.

  2. Thanks for your comment, Mona! Sounds like your Saluki experience keeps you coming back for more, too. I love that feeling, and I love that the curiosity this challenge has re-awakened in me. So very thankful to have that back again.
