21-K by Roger

K is for Knowledge

I’ve been a librarian for 25 years, come October 19 of this year. The great thing about that is that almost every day, I learn something new, something I might not have thought to look up but nevertheless I find useful.

I have been blogging for 12.5 years, come November 2. Usually I have a pretty good idea what it is I write. But I often have to fact check bits and pieces. When DID that album come out? What year was she born? What I have discovered is if you get one fact wrong, people will dismiss the entire premise of your argument.-

Just this week, some guy at the bus stop had a schedule for a suburban bus that wouldn’t arrive for another three hours. I happened to know that a bus coming in the next 20 minutes would at least get him close to his destination far sooner. On the same day, I helped a young man put his bike on a bus, something I didn’t know first time out either.

I have a teenager, so all SORTS of stuff that I wouldn’t otherwise have even cared about is in my brain.

A surprising bit of trivia I know. Occasionally, it comes in handy.

The point at which you think you know it all should never come.

  1. and so we learn every day
    by looking things up
    or from someone in the street or shop
    what the one does not know , knows the other one
    and if we are willing to listen to one and other
    there will be more knowledge and less war
    have a nice week

  2. How cool! I wonder if I saw you on Jeopardy. I love learning new stuff. I wrote career books, writing over 1,000 career profiles in a wide range of fields. While working on my last book I thought my head would explode with all the knowledge that I’d been sticking in it. Ka-bow!
