Learning something new

I’ll admit it. When I hear the phrase, “Learn something new every day,” I think of Martha Stewart. The phrase was used over and over on her television show. The phrase sticks in my memory because I watched the show—a lot. No, I’m not ashamed. I probably learned more about cooking from her than anyone else.

But the phrase is attributed to Ralph Waldo Emerson:

Knowledge is when you learn something new every day. Wisdom is when you let something go every day”

With no credit to Emerson, Stewart borrowed and added to create:

“If you learn something new every day, you can teach something new every day.”

Both of these quotes summarize where I am on my COVID 19-inspired journey of re-education on all thing about the human voice. Since last week’s post, I have learned new things about the projection of the voice. This new knowledge gives me the courage to let previous information go. The best part is I get to teach this to my students.
