Re-learn

I am trying to remember

Trigonometry

to give my son

support

in his forthcoming exams.

.

Once upon a time

in a different world

I had an understanding

of the concept.

.

Nowadays

It is far away;

So remote

& out of reach

That I can’t do it.

.

It feels like grasping

dust

or

noise.

.

It is

as if

the

youth

in Langside College

was a different

person.

.

Indeed – he was;

If we take 7 years

as the timespan for renewal;

I am almost

seven

different people from who I was

Then.

.

And,

Who am I now?

If anyone else has been in this situation, I’d love to hear what you did…

  1. Try encouraging your son to teach you what he knows and has to revise – this may help to clarify the basic principles and bring them back to memory. Very good luck – ask questions, wrangle the problems together!
