Life is a journey and at every moment we discover something new about ourselves or about the world around us(including other people). Over my life time(which is 21 years) I have discovered many things about the world but when ever I think that I know almost everything I discover something new. So my question to you is, what have you discovered lately(about yourself or about the world around you)?

Everyday, I discover some things like a new knowledge, a new thing about someone or stuff like that. But I'm normally interested in gadget stuffs, so I could be reading it from online and hence, get my healthy dosage. I read blogs too, journals, stories, news and whatnot. I try to squeeze everything that I can and I don't have any specific agenda. I just do what I like and when I like.. as long as it's not affecting work-time..

Hi biman, I am seventy years old and I'm still learning new things about myself and about the world around me. In fact the older I get the more I realize how little I really know. I have many more questions today than I did at your age and expect to have even more in the years ahead. I'm now convinced that we could never live long enough to know everything and that most of us don't really start learning until we've reached sixty. Blessings.

If you have a yahoo e-mail account every once in a while you will get the message, Unfortunately you have stumbled on an area where we are experiencing difficulties, or something like that. Well a couple of weeks ago I did just this with my son. The discussion was about the man who refused to marry a mixed race couple because he felt the children resulting from these marriages had a difficult life ahead of them. I said that I admired his strength in standing up for something he believed, and my calm ,collected son exploded in outrage. Did he ask me why? No he just came unglued. I was amazed but every happy that this man felt so much passion about the subject. Hopefully when he calms down he will remember that I am not a raciest in any way, I have several mixed race couple in my family and as friends,who I support unconditionally, what I was admiring was that this man had the strength of his beliefs, if more of us had this our world would be a better place, instead most of us only defend our beliefs when we are sure it's safe to do so. So Yes I can freely state that I discovered something new about my son.
