TRADITIONAL…NOT ME

I never followed
Traditional ways…
Though some
Might serve
Me better
Than not…

Though reading
Taught me
Many things
NOT to do
I do most
By trial and error

Call me stubborn
Perhaps it’s true…
But hands on
Is how I learn
Even when it hurts…
BANG!…OUCH! SEE?

    Love this Robert! I too have always learned by experience, and yes, there is always those bangs and ouches.

      Yep…I can read for comprehension, but it doesn’t really sink in until I use what I read and see it work. Sometimes the ouch is only related to pride, but when not, it can hurt even more. 😛

        Same way.. Like when I go to build something, I need the pictures more than the words🤔

        Some things I can figure without either, but I check just to be sure…maybe a touch of OCD? 😛
