      Hey Marko!

      That is definitely a good goal for life, but to me, it doesn’t feel like a purpose… a higher calling. Teaching and learning feel to me like something we have to do as humans, like part of the cycle. When we’re learning, we’re growing and creating. New growth leads to new seeds which lead to more new growth. When we’re not learning, we’re stagnant. Stagnation leads to decay, and decay leads to death. But death also leads to new growth.

      Each of us also has cycles where we are the teacher, and cycles where we are the student.

      So I agree with you that learning and teaching are important. But they feel more like a necessity, a basic function, than they do a purpose.

      An amazing adventure feels to me more like a purpose.

      I’ll be interested to hear your thoughts. What kind of work do you do?

    I guess I forgot to push “submit comment” as I don’t see it here. I’d like to put my claim on Friday, Feb. 11 in honor of Grandpa Gordon’s birthdate way back in 1931. Does anyone else have that day since I’m late now in getting this to you?

    Grandpa Gordon loved Christmas. It was always so much fun to put up the tree — and hope it stayed up. The year we got Hilda she barked all night long. Mom and Dad had put her in a big box right next to the tree. We all knew what was the big present that year — even without getting out of our rooms and snooping. The year Gordy got his train set, we all got sent to bed earlier than usual for Christmas Eve. Dad (and his brothers) were so tired Christmas Day, but they played with the train set all day!

    Another great memory of Dad was when he invited the “Fogcutters” to dinner. Lisa and I were in the band’s “Fan Club”. I think Lisa was an officer! Dad said he invented a drink called the Fogcutter: pineapple juice, orange juice, and vodka. We were in junior high school.
