What is one decision you made that has led to you being here today?
20 years ago my husband and I purchased property on a lake, along with an old camper trailer. We dreamed about having a cabin -- a place to escape to from city life (near Vancouver) on weekends and holidays. We found ourselves driving back and forth almost every weekend, 4 hours each direction, and inventing creative ways to extend our time at the lake. One day we asked ourselves this question: Why don't we call the lake home, and visit the city for work? And we did! Our house sold in a matter of weeks and we started construction on our now home. The day we reached the turnkey phase the floor fell out of our rusted camper. Timing is everything.
What is present in the background of this day?
I'm thinking about how much I appreciate intuitive interfaces.
What are you hoping to learn in this course?

1 decision that led me here today
The decision to move south from Yukon was hard but we ended up on Vancouver Island which led me to online facilitation (more than f2f) which led me to Facilitating Learning Online workshops, to Sylvia Currie, and all the other amazing co-facilitators that are parts of this online community.
1 place of deep connection
Rathtrevor Provincial Park - I've been visiting since I was 10. So many memories are triggered whenever I walk the beach or trails. Now I live a short drive away - awesome!
Who has inspired me recently?
Monica - my djembe instructor who can listen and manage multiple rhythms and drummers in her head and still keep smiling!
Cogdog (aka Alan Levine) - whenever I am at a loss for how to engage learners, I go to his blog for ideas. A constant outpouring.
Stephanie Nolen - one of the best writers and 'splainers' I've ever read. She makes the complex clear and holds up a clear glass through which to see and understand different peoples and cultures.
In this day
Feeling grateful...to have so many options to learn, so many beautiful places to explore, so many possibilities to contemplate..
Having trouble embedding my Padlet this morning :(
