“The capacity to learn is a gift.
The ability to learn is a skill.
The willingness to learn is a choice.”
-Brian Herbert, author, House Harkonnen
In 1973, the first portable cell phone call was made when Martin Cooper, a senior engineer at Motorola, called a rival telecom company and informed them he was talking to them on a mobile phone. The phone he used got 30 minutes of talk-time and it took around 10 hours to charge.
Imagine being Cooper walking around with that giant phone! Not only was he claiming bragging rights over his competition….but he knew he was the first. Taking that giant leap for mankind. Leaping a tall building in a single bound. Wouldn’t that be an amazing feeling?
We all have that chance to feel more powerful than a locomotive every day. We have the capacity and ability to learn. But do we have the willingness to step out?
Make a little history today. Sit down with a sketchbook and sketch your first locomotive. Paint your favorite superhero. Choose something you’ve never done before – and just do it.

The packets have a couple stamps and maybe some dies in them – lots of goodies for crafty peeps to enjoy! Winners will be selected the evening of April 25 (tomorrow night!), and posted here on this blog next week. Though I’ll likely be emailing everyone to get addresses to ship the packets out!

Once a month or so I’ve been trying to do a live video — I successfully wrangled YouTube Live for this one. It’s long – so if you’re interested in watching, just pop it on and listen while you practice your class lessons!
