Today’s Word: Tabula Rasa

I refuse to think myself learned for fear of hubris beyond reason.

Three and sixty years I have studied at the feet of that greatest of all teachers, life. It has shown me wondrous beauty and heart wrenching fear. I have tasted dragon's egg soup, battled legions of undead, and known deep and true love with the right person. But even now, when, though I cannot yet feel death drawing near, I know it lurks just in the next vale, I realize I am tabula rasa; fetal in a sea of knowledge and enlightenment -- immersed in waters I cannot taste, touch or feel.
