Sowing Seeds and the Art of Sharing Knowledge


“The Church of Instinct”, “As Above So Below” and “From the Old House” by Michele Bledsoe


First and foremost, I am a painter..

but I am other things as well.


I have learned a lot

throughout the course of my life..

cultivating valuable skills

that I have worked hard to accumulate.

Through trial and error

I have gained experience..

And with years of practice

I’ve learned to do things

that I used to think were

miles beyond my capabilities.


I suppose I could hold a series of costly workshops

on a number of  topics..

everything from social media marketing

to formatting and publishing ebooks.


Or maybe I could hoard my knowledge

and use these skills for myself alone.



I went in a different direction..

choosing to focus more on

what good can I do through sharing my various gifts

rather than how much money I can make

selling them.


So now I spend my days

working with young adults within the autism spectrum..

teaching them

everything I’ve learned.


Maybe that’s not the path

to making myself a ton of money..

but by sowing these seeds

and watching my students grow

I am already rich beyond measure.
