What are you an expert in?

What does it mean to you to be an expert in general or in that thing?

I'm a pretty good teacher.

It means I spend a lot of time being open to other teachers, to being keyed-in to my students and being willing to alter my plan at any time to better suit the class I have (not the class I imagined I have).

I'm also pretty good at bikes, collective living, rigging, and aerials.

It means I know a lot about these things, and I explain what information I have in ways that the listener will hear (this is sometimes highly important, particularly in rigging. I really need other non-aerial riggers to hear what I have to say, and the words I choose are not the same words I'd choose to use with, say, the person hiring me who has nothing to do with carabiners or weight-bearing structures).

Expert? I'm an expert friend. I've been doing it a long time.

I think being an expert ANYthing means being aware, willing, open, and flexible.

None of us should ever, ever stop learning.
