There is a saying "give a man a fish and you feed him for a day, teahc a man to fish and you feed him for life". I have finally accepted that I am a visual sharer type of person. I leabrn by looking and teach by showing. I am all about the picture and I know I do a lot of hand movemebts when i talk. That is just the way I am. If i can share any of my knowledge, I will and i do. This is becuase someone took the time to show me, to teahc me and it is my job to pass that knowledge on to someone else becuase i am alive.
