Learn Something New Every Day - Literally this time Day 7

"The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn"
Alvin Toffler


I think I am getting all the "assignments" muddled up and mixed up.. but I am learning that it doesn't really matter, that sticking with it and doing the challenge is what actually is important. For the "learning something new" prompt I was quite literal and took off to Walsall Art Gallery and then spend some time online finding a course I would like to do in the new year. So, here is what i learned:


  • A sheep suspended in formaldehyde is ART.
  • Pieces of wood, string, tin cans and other random items glued together, with a provocative sign slapped on the front is also called ART.
  • Security Guards at Art Galleries are very nice people.
  • There is a new exhibition coming by an artist called Ged Quinn that looks very interesting and worth a look at.
  • I can learn a lot by just sitting and listening.
  • There are literally millions of courses available and opportunities to learn are endless.
  • Education does not mean the same as learning.
