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..
