Thoughts on learning and teaching...and the role of risk and failure...and life.

It may be an old friend you haven't called. It might be a long-overdue apology or some other wrong you've long intended to set right. But the longer you let whatever it is go, the harder it seems--or, perhaps, the harder it actually becomes--to take the much-needed action.
What is that tipping point in favor of (finally) doing versus leaving something to decay in the murky well of intention? I don't know the answer to that question, if there's an answer to be known. But I know the small choices to do or not to do (Shakespeare's Hamlet who cannot decide whether to be or not to be) define us as surely as a building is built brick by brick.
