What is your hearts desire?

Posted 16th March 2011 at 11:56 AM by Ebonytears

This question was asked of me when I was backpacking over 15 years ago. At the time I gave a flippant answer and forgot about it. Recently it has been something I have been thinking about.

The other day it came to me. My hearts desire is, quite simply, to learn. Doesn't seem like a biggy really, something rather simple. It's not and it has caused me no amount of trouble.

I don't just read books, I devour them. I am always enrolled in some course or another of some...
