Big, Bold Shifts…

…the willingness to “go” beyond our comfort zones.

I have learned (probably not as well as I should), that there is little attainable value in being conceptually so far ahead of mainstream practices that one cannot possibly and effectively construct a quantifiable knowledge bridge between reality as we know and understand it, and possibilities as we see and/or imagine them.

Perhaps… No, no-doubts that BIG, BOLD SHIFTS must first occur within ourselves; not necessarily about our ability to think, explore and create per se (we’re probably all very good at this or wouldn’t be reading this), but about enhancing our abilities to patiently, efficiently and quantifiably build these bridges of understanding.

Although today’s script isn’t dramatically different from the one we explored and read from 20 years ago, the “stage-set” for the play – the current geo-political, economic and societal reality – is fresh, unrecognizable and fertile to receive all well conceived ideas.

What an opportunity for us… What exciting times… What a privilege to breathe and play that which resonates and is at the core of our professional selves.

Poems in Song and Prayer…


IF IT BE YOUR WILL…   sounds from the heart of Leonard Cohen as interpreted by Anthony.

Education informs… individuals decide.

Notwithstanding the necessity and correctness of fixing and improving all aspects of the educational system, ultimately it is the “passenger or receiver” that must overcome all faced challenges so as to translate one’s experiences into something useful and lasting…or not.

Few things are definitive or everlasting save for our individual decisions to accept them as so.

Life (in its entirety) is for learning and the educational system an important component meant only to give us a formal foundation; to teach us the fundamentals of “flight”. It is up to each one of us to receive these lessons, practice and learn well or not… then to desire and have the courage to cut-open a window through the wall of our individual limitations through which we may take these learned basics and adapt them to create our individual lifelong learning choices and paths.

I believe it is impossible to over-emphasize the bearing and importance that “family” has on any discussion about formation, learning and passion, but equally, should we not disregard that it is the SELF…the individual that ultimately determines how to collate and weave their past and present experiences into a useful life in an ever evolving spiral.
