Now and then I run across something that is only indirectly related to practice, but which I feel compelled to share. Here is a talk by Sir Kenneth Robinson that you should listen to and watch, wonderfully animated by the good folks at RSAnimate. Hope you find it enjoyable and stimulating. Have fun, and good luck with your practice.

Fabulous video, not just for the animation, but for its message. I homeschooled my kids becasue I didn’t want a school to kill their love for learning. Most homeschoolers are trying to keep alive the divergent thinking.
I also teach homeschool teenagers how to start a micro business. Running a business is a great way to avoid the trappings of the industrialist thinking mentioned in the video.
Thanks for posting it.
BTW, I heard you on The Writing Show podcast and loved it!
Thanks for the comment! Yeah, the message is great. If you haven’t heard/seen his first TED talk (http://www.ted.com/talks/ken_robinson_says_schools_kill_creativity.html) you should check it out. Even better (and funnier) than this one, on a similar theme.
And thanks for the Writing Show shoutout, too. It’s weird to put things out there and then wonder where they go and who hears them. Almost like they have a secret life of their own. Glad to know they don’t just disappear into the ether. Happy holidays!
