So the first MAKE is out and it's all about How To's. What a crackerjack topic and I can totally hear myself asking students to do this kind of thing.
The learning challenge is for me! Gulp. I'm not good enough at anything to offer a how-to, I think <interpret that to mean that in my head, I'm panicking >. Oh, the authors have anticipated my thinking and made the claim ,
And then proceeded to give me many excellent examples on which I could base on my own work. The further challenge is to introduce myself or how to be a resident of my community. Gulp.
Right now I'm very involved in taking care of my mom. She's 92 years old and struggling with cancer. My world is involved with How To love your mom when she's at the end of her life. It sounds like such a bummer topic but is very close to my heart and would be as authentic to who I am right now as I could get. I hope I could get some sweet pics of her and approach this topic in a good way. I am honored to be here with her in these moments and to have a chance to give back to someone who spent my whole life giving to me.
So I need to really consider how to do this in a way that celebrates the best of what we have and the love we share. Going to give this some serious thought. Take some good recordings.
