Never stop learningMarch 18th, 2014 at 3:22 pm by chadbrummett under 2 KASA Style
This week seems to be all about learning. Yes, Chad, it’s only Tuesday you say… but the week has already been full of learning and sharing new experiences.
If you were with us today on Style, you met two extraordinary gentlemen from Japan who are here for a week sharing the art of Japanese kite-making. Tako Kichi will be in residence at the Museum of International Folk Art through Sunday and it’s truly a one-of-a-kind experience for New Mexicans. Kite making means much more to the Japanese. It is a beacon of prosperity and long life for newborn boys. It’s a celebration of culture and something that is handed down from generation to generation. It’s also a poignant reminder that the simple things in life are often the most meaningful and beautiful.
We’re also talking with National American University today about their upcoming Spring term. All too often adults who dream of heading back to school get sidetracked and diverted from their road to higher learning. NAU is unique in that they make it easier for people to squeeze in school during their hectic days of work and family. As their jingle reminds us, “one day, one night -Saturday’s alright…” you know the tune. Now get to know the University.
Lastly, we’re learning that it’s never too late to pursue that dream career. R. Samuel Baty serves as an inspiration to us all. He worked for years as an engineer. He served in the Air Force. He worked as an educator. However, he felt the need to expand even further by trying his hand at narrative, historic fiction. Four books later, he has found a second life as a novelist… a life that is as diverse and fulfilling as one could hope for.
Keep with us on the journey tomorrow. We’ll be learning about Sports & Wellness’ strength training that finds its base in ballet. Santa Fe Humane will also introduce us to three new dogs that have gone from bow to wow… and are looking for a forever home. See you tomorrow at 9 for an all-new 2KASA Style!
