Beginner's Mind

I can feel my head—and whole being, in fact—having a hard time getting around the new technology in my life, though I’ve introduced it willingly.  The iPad is just different enough from both iPod and laptop to make me dyslexic, short-circuited like a fuse with too many demands on it at once, almost panicked.  It’s really strange, and a definitely physical sensation, as if my brain is fighting off a bacterial attack.  I don’t like it at all when I don’t know how to do things.

Beginner’s mind is one thing, but dimwit’s mind quite another!
