I am so pleased to showcase our new “Life-Long-Learners” blog logo. Obviously, the implied message in our title is that learning should continue throughout our cradle to grave adventure. As the font emphasis increases in the three words “Life”, “Long”, and “Learners”, so too should our knowledge continue growing during our lifetime. However, it is our new logo which appeals to the educator within me. The logo illustrates the three stages in our human development – child, adolescent, and adult. Learning should continue through each of these individual phases. More importantly, the logo portrays that through communicating, collaborating, and “putting our heads together”, each individual can benefit from the ideas that others share. Together, we can become true “Life-Long-Learners”.
Our header logo would not be complete without including our motto “Ancora Imparo!” This remarkable phrase was made by Michelangelo long after he had sculpted the marble statue “David” or painted the frescoes on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. At 87 years of age, Michelangelo uttered “Ancora Imparo!” which translates to “Still, I am learning” or I am still learning”. Imagine such a profound statement being admitted by this artistic genius who recognized that, even in his latter years, there was still much more to learn. As such, “Ancora Imparo!” seems to be a very fitting motto for our blog and a mantra for all “Life-Long-Learners”.
Take care & keep smiling 🙂
