    "In education, we feel, something must be amiss and the way to sort it out is, of course, to have targets. Quite an interesting idea, this idea that you know what it is and you aim straight for it and you get it. Targets and algorithms and systems and checklists and procedures and guidelines. And this is all about making sure you have the right product; but somehow this doesn't seem to be working.

    And one of the problems is it suggests that education is about a thing, which is inserted in another thing, as you insert a widget into a machine. But it's not like that of course; its about a relationship. Education is about a relationship, it's not a substance. And that relationship cannot be legislated for, because it is about all sorts of things that can't even be described.

    A manner, tone, an enquiring mind, and openess; a model of what a certain way of being might be, for those who are still in the process of becoming who they are. - Ian McGilchrist"
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    A friend of mine told me about this dog breed that left me in awe.

    "The Rhodesian Ridgeback, once known as the African Lion Hound, was developed in South Africa by Boer farmers. The farmers needed a versatile hunting dog who could withstand the extreme temperatures and terrain of the bush, survive when water rations were low, protect property, and be a companion to the entire family."

    "When big-game hunting became popular, they found that the dogs were well suited for accompanying them when they hunted lions from horseback. The dogs would hold the lion at bay until the hunters arrived."

    Read more at Rhodesian Ridgeback Dog Breed Information, Pictures, Characteristics & Facts - Dogtime

    A dog breed that is used to hunt lions in the bush You don't get more bad ass than that for a dog.

    I think it's highly probable that TypeC is free of commies. May day came and went with nary a thread celebrating the day.

    Are you focused? Do you 'feel' unstoppable? How hot is the fire?

    Suggestion, read this: The Obstacle Is The Way; The Timeless Art Of Turning Trial Into Triumph ~ Ryan Holiday. Or watch the FULL audio book on YouTube, narrated by the author himself https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ryan_Holiday

    Bro, I'd take reading one short page over listening for 6 hours any day! But the book actually sounds useful and interesting, I'll probably give it a whirl when I've got some time!

    P.S It's not you is it, you aren't just advertising your own book here right? *side eyes*

    Of course. I prefer audio myself because it's not as consuming and the data transfer is quicker. 6 hours straight would be gruelling. I prefer 20-30 min bursts.

    While flattering it's not true : D. Your intuition knows. You stated "a couple months". You've been down a similar road before. Most of us have. Keeping that resolve alive would be great wouldn't it? Leveraging 'it' for maximum output would be good no? Why is 'it' fleeting?
