    Hugs and hugs, Lisa!

    “The dominant systems of education are based on three ‘assumptions’ that are exactly opposite to how human lives are actually lived. First, they promote standardization and a narrow view of intelligence when human talents are diverse and personal. Second, they promote compliance when cultural progress and achievement depend on the cultivation of imagination and creativity. Third, they are linear and rigid when the course of each human life, including yours, is organic and largely unpredictable.” —Ken Robinson Visit http://www.paulamariecoomer.com

      Perfect quote to accompany this post, Paula, thank you! I was reading Paz’s ‘A Tree Within’ and a little piece of evergreen branch fell into my lap. I think it had been in my hair for hours, but when it appeared, it felt like a gift from the unseen…showing me that life is definitely “organic and largely unpredictable…” Hugs!

    I love the way you combine words and images Lisa! I’m reminded to slow down and see connections.

    thanks ksk! glad you found a connection. i’ve been reminded to be present, too, lately. “a tree within” also brings to mind the photo you showed me where the human iris looks like a forest
