This post first went live 2 years ago, and while I originally wanted to revisit this post as a way of taking a little break (though not really), I couldn’t help but read it over, and once I started I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to polish it up a little, smoothing some of the edges and adding a few more examples.
I think I may make a habit of revisiting old posts, from time to time. After all, this is a journey, and there’s always more to learn.

At different times I’ve considered writing to be my hobby, my dream, my passion, and my profession, and while all of those labels are accurate; I think writing has also become a very unique form of education, a program where I am both the student and the instructor.
