First Blog and First Post

The title of this blog comes from a favorite poem of mine by Robert Bly entitled Snowbanks North of the House. To me, the poem really gets at the heart of why so many people struggle with the mind's desire to continue learning throughout our lifetime and, as Bly aptly puts it:

The toe of the shoe pivots in the dust ...

And the man in the black coat turns,

and goes backdown the hill.

No one knows why he came, or why he

turned away, and did not climb the hill.

That's all for now - Time to get on to Task Three in becoming a Learner 2.0 (more on this later).
