"education is life itself"

Enjoyed our last round of NW reports this afternoon: Jason on the "gods" and other tricksters of native American mythology (especially the unpronouncable Creator Mom A'akuluujjusi), Josh on Green Catholicism (will solar panels lift Benedict past the priest scandals to beatitude?), Willie on "Gasland," Paul on "Permaculture," & Brandon on modular thorium-based nuclear energy. I wish our course could just keep on keepin' on. It'll come around again Spring after next, send me your suggestions. Meanwhile, keep it clean, native, & green.

Just to reiterate Paul's Dewey quote, which is really a good note to end every semester on:

"Education is not preparation for life, education is life itself."

We don't have to meet, to continue learning and educating one another. Meeting is always nice, though. Keep in touch, folks. I'll buy you a beer when you come around.
