Learning From a Child

Sunday Reflections

Triptych Part Three is in the works. I’m working on a scene where an adult is put into a position where he has to learn from a youth. I appreciate when I get to learn from those younger than me. I’ve never really had any problem with it. I think both young and old have so much to learn from each other. When I add this scene into my story (an adult learning from a youth), it’s not to belittle the knowledge that comes with experience, but to play with the idea that when two people come together for common good, they both can learn something from each other.

How do you think you’d feel if you were put into a position where you’re expected to learn from a child?

Jayne is a writer. On her free time she likes to be with her family hiking outdoors and traveling. New England is her home and place of birth. When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.
