Why do we do that? Spend most of our time, doing so many things other than what we are passionate about? Finding excuses, reasons why we can't do what we want to? Good questions!
Which leads me to another reason why I started this blog. I want to use it to explore - to learn. We learn through asking questions, and then being open to the answers Life offers. We learn through being brave enough to try new things, and to share these with others. We learn through admitting we don't know everything already...
I called this "Looking For Pearls" because I am interested to see what unexpected "lessons" I will learn from doing this. What types of "gems", of insights, will I stumble across on this journey? I'll write about whatever's on my mind. I'm a teacher - lots to reflect on there! I'm a lover of history, travel, good food, and a laugh. I'm a incurable romantic, lucky to be married to a beautiful woman (and her impish chihuahua, Izzy!)
