Raven 140: Switch Roles

Any true teacher is also a student -- an ongoing student of the subject matter, certainly, but also a student of zir students. Do the roles of teacher and student switch back and forth? Or does each continually and always include the other? Either way, what's the difference, then, between the teacher and the student?

Gray Wolf seems to be noticing a difference in authority -- and she hints that she chafes at that authority. There's hope for her yet!

Gray Wolf said, "Why do we always do everything in exactly the same way?"
Raven said, "Steady on."
Gray Wolf said, "Maybe we should switch roles sometimes. Somebody else could be the teacher and you could be just one of the students."
Raven said, "It's happening."
