“Every day you may make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and glory of the climb.” –Winston Churchill
A perfect description of my “climb” in CCK08--
Although seemingly great boulders blocked my path at times, nevertheless my journey was ever-improving because of the very nature of open, connected/networked learning. Countless, valuable connections guided my way and for those, I am eternally grateful. At times, when I was not in the best shape for the steep ascent, the autonomy afforded by this model, allowed me to set my own pace. Thanks to the path markers left by George and Stephen as they led the climb, I made good progress in finding my way. As mentioned by others, this journey’s not ended, yet only beginning—I eagerly anticipate views of incredibly, expansive landscapes as I continue the climb.
My sincerest thank you to George and Stephen for this opportunity and my very best personal wishes to all with whom I made connections. May they continue--
