    }())

  5. with every step relearn how to walk
    with every note relearn how to play
    with every word relearn how to write
    with every bite relearn how to taste
    with every blink relearn how to see
    with every breath relearn how to live
    with every character relearn how to type

    let repetition amplify small changes
    learn how to learn
    then relearn it
