Wisdom for the journey

Reactions: 
 Perry Downs came and shared some doctoral purposes with the Ed.D./Ph.D. faculty and students on October 8, 2014.Here are my brief bullet notes.
  • Learn to think. Done best in community. Critical thinking, not critical spirit. Provoke: questions, diagram.
  • Pursue truth wherever it may be found. Disruptive truth telling done with care, liberating from boundaries, providing real purpose.
  • Learn to ask good questions. Research is a way of seeing beyond the appearance. Discipline.
  • Establishing sustainable habits. Inquiry. Deeper questions. Curiosity. Collaborative work and inquiry. Reading important works. Teaching through collaboration.

My Perfect Travel Mug

Reactions: 
 I searched for months. No so-called travel mug was sufficient for my needs: sealing, non-reactive, sippy lid, and cool. Then I spotted a Ball® 8oz Quilted Crystal Jelly Jar in my local supermarket. Perfect...except the lid began to leak (who knew canning lids were designed as single use? not me).

Then the solution presented itself: The reCAP Mason Jars Pour Cap.

And, behold, my perfect travel mug. Yay!


For the curious who may be wondering why this is on a blog now dedicated to my dissertation process: coffee is the elixir of life and a perfect travel mug is required for those of us who dissertate on public transit. :-)

And, nothing...but commitment

Reactions: 
The commitment to write each morning has one major downfall: the blank mind staring at the blank page staring back. It insists on fear--writer's block, so-called--but it lacks power, for commitment remains. I will write, even if about not having anything to write, for writing is primarily about task, not about inspiration.

So, for today, this is the fruit of my morning ten minutes: a renewed commitment kept and a page filled.
