Learning how to

They learned how to take

and they imagined what to

And there was a moment

changing for good.
Jan Ahlstedt ©
They have learnt that
no one knows all, and
it shouldn’t stop them
from trying!
Jan Ahlstedt ©
And they have learnt
what they don’t know or
why it is important to be
comfortable with being
uncomfortable.
