Some things never change

I came across this old ballad from the 17th Century, as part of the research in my current work.

Nothing really changes…

“O see ye not yon narrow road

    So thick beset with thorns and briars?

That is the path of righteousness,

   Though after it but few enquires.

‘And see ye not that broad, broad road

   That lies across that lily leven?

That is the path of wickedness,

   Though some call it the road to heaven.”

Thomas the Rhymer (Anonymous)

I have been a teacher all my life. That doesn't just mean in School! I taught my brothers to ride bikes and go camping in the mountains. I taught Football, Cricket, Squash, Sailing, Climbing and Karate. In BNI I became the Education Coordinator. With my Property Business I laid on Investment Seminars. I taught my sons to Fish for Carp. And I still teach Maths and Physics to students who want to go to University to study Medicine or Engineering. Now I am teaching people the things I am learning online.
