extracurricular education

Have often thought in the nearly two years that I have been at school that I am learning more outside the curriculum than within, actually it is about equal amounts. Recently that extra curricular subject has been how fluid we are, how much we change, how often our bodies/minds/spirits change and how much it all changes.

Dr Wang, an amazing physician from China with 35 plus years of experience taught us that most clearly the other night in clinic. Thank goodness, it has been assumed, skirted around, behind the scenes, ever present, like the water a fish lives in, but until Thursday night it has never come to my senses as clearly.

There is no one formula, no one treatment, because we are ever changing. The formulas should follow us like a dinghy hauled behind a boat. As we move into different waters so should they. When the tide goes out the treatment needs to reflect that, and so on.

Yes, this is common sense. But often it is nice to have common sense aired out, brought to our attention and enjoyed.
