Bestest Friend and I are doing a blog project. Each day we will write a blog post on a pre-determined theme chosen by a random noun generator. The theme for the third day of the month is "Direction."
On Wednesday and Thursday nights, my husband I went to lectures as experts talked about things that they know a lot about. One was held at the community center and the other was at a hobby farm of one of my husband's colleagues.
On Wednesday, we had the city and county directors of parks and recreation from our local community talk about all the parks in our area and what services parks and rec offer. On Thursday, the director of the Stax Museum of Soul Music talked about the history of Stax Records and how the museum came to be what it is today.
Here's the deal. I am not particularly invested in the softball leagues in our town or the history of Otis Redding and Sam and Dave but I love hearing experts talk about things they are invested in. I also did learn a lot about some of the country parks I've never been to (am making a list of summer goals as we speak!) and I learned some great songs that should be on my playlist.
I sometimes marvel about people who can get up and talk about something with no notes for an hour at a time. What am I an expert in that I could give a lecture on? Fantasy books by female authors? Three ways to solve systems of equations? How to avoid gluten poisoning? Gift giving for all occasions?
What's your expertise?
