It happens in this time. Within all of this hassell and bustle, there is peace to be found. It matters that our approach of founding is addressed. If we don't walk so fast,  if our minds are rested. We will have found this, where and whenever we intend understanding. Time were ritual is small,  place where space is eternal. There is a pattern to making sense. Personalised and collective. Forget the calling of the influential and competitive. Forget the combatants. Attempt to day dream. Fall over the drawn line. Re-position and let each door open wide. So much to see in so many small spaces. A universe in each unearthed cavity. There are many gods who nonsensically watch us. All whispering whilst we restrictively rant. They have privileged loss. They have fallen from superiority to obscurity. Their stories are silent whilst we are glorious in distraction. Fall with them, dream with them,  be at mind with them. Within each fall, they linger a

Away from the maddening crowd

Have you ever been to Bali? Have you visited the hills of Ubud? Have you stayed in Penestanan? Try it you may like it. Get away from the tourist industry, that spikes your adrenaline and roadblocks your inner mind. Get away from the maddening crowds. Stay in a family home-stay. Where rest and relaxation is premium, Where it is so peaceful, Where it is still and quiet, With tropical gardens, Statues of gods, Little moats and personalised bridges. All mannered by human touch. Waiting and whispering to your senses. Perfumed sounds of cultural resonance. A sentiment in time and place.

Godin Connectedness

Godin Connectedness  We argued with the vengeance from poorly informed memory. Straight from the loss to blame. For whatever reason it perpetuated justification. Of construeded loss,  from the need to self victimise. To the need of claiming nothing in particular. It was the battle to ingrain and embellish memory. In so, we tore each other apart and to feed individual right. Our eternal want to be known as right. The want for immediate anger to surface, rant and to glorify our past glories of being wronged. And then we rested exhausted.

Can we embrace future visions?

Image
Can we embrace a new vision of school and work? Can school leaders embrace future visions of life in schools? Can industry leaders engage workers in the workplace? Can we build communities with purpose? Can we build a sense of wholeness across school, work and life? Can we create value through sharing rather than competing?

Queen's Birthday - King and Queen quotes to ponder

Let us not take ourselves too seriously. None of us has a monopoly on wisdom. Queen Elizabeth II A throne is only a bench covered with velvet.  Napoleon Bonaparte Brass shines as fair to the ignorant as gold to the goldsmiths.  Elizabeth I All the time I feel I must justify my existence.  Prince Of Wales Charles Kings fight for empires, madmen for applause.  John Dryden They say that kings are made in the image of God. If that is what he looks like, I feel sorry for God .

Queen Elizabeth II Kings are not born: they are made by artificial hallucination.  George Bernard Shaw If your job is to leaven ordinary lives with elevating spectacle, be elevating or be gone.  George Will When life seems hard, the courageous do not lie do

Ass essment - the tail that wags the dog

Ass essment - the tail that wags the dog Sergiovanni and Starratt (2007), assert that assessment has often been looked upon as, “the tail that wags the dog”, meaning, “what is assessed is what gets taught, which becomes or defines the curriculum” (pg. 127).  Assessment should not be something that happens after the instruction takes place for the purpose of assigning a grade, but it should be a relevant part of the teaching and learning process.
