We are all a product of our experience processed. What follows is an expression of my experience processed. It is not a comprehensive, all-encompassing summary but more a series of snapshots, with repetitions for sure and areas of neglect or silence unintended. There is utility potentially here for any reader, as there was for me, to learn these things. Being a student is the best thing to be and a necessary thing if we are to overcome the inevitable and universal limitations of our own programming; familial, cultural or otherwise. Change begins with awareness, and sameness continues without.
