Daily Prompt Challenge: Connect the Dots

Open your nearest book to page 82. Take the third full sentence on the page, and work it into a post somehow.

“But these words carry into our minds the strange idea that there exists two very different processes: (1) learning to play the cello; and (2) playing the cello.”

John Holt – Chicken Soup for the Soul

Are there really two different processes to do this?  I believe that like the cello, I am able to learn how to write a sensible piece by actually writing one.  I am able to learn a new song by actually listening and singing the song.  I learn a new language by actually speaking it.  I am able to learn photography by actually taking pictures.  In other words, in order to learn a new thing, we should be actually doing or practicing it.

  1. Okay, I’ve got 2 books near me right now, one on top of the other. So I’m grabbing the one on top, because I think THAT is nearer…opening to page 82…It states, “3. Select your ISO by pressing the ISO button on the top of the camera and then turning the Main dial.”

    Yes, it’s a photography book I bought to get to know my DSLR better. 🙂

    • haha…hmmm…preparing for a photoshoot? hehe… I wanna read photography books too. I was currently reading one but these days were just so busy with work. Argh! Hope to have more time to read, and practice. 🙂
