Expanding our Boundaries

Blogging starts with what people read. The big difference with  publishing now is in the process.   Publishing can  no longer be treated as the end of the process. Writing happens toward the beginning of the process and we publish to connect , to comment, to receive comment .  from W. Richardson, Expanding our Boundaries, OTF Conference 
Expand our Boundaries
Blogging is a unique genre of writing - made for critical thinking, writing that hypertext allows for in an environment that we can link ideas. The link is imperative. If we are not connecting ideas with our writing ....W. Richa.2009rdson Feb 27

Sunday Night in the Forest

The forest is the place where vegetable life thrives and luxuriates, free from any control or cultivation. And since its foliage obscures the light of the sun, it is therefore regarded as opposed to the sun's power and as a symbol of the Earth. Since the female principle is identified with the unconsciousness , it follows that the forest is also a symbol of the unconsciousness. It is for this reason that Jung maintains that the sylvan terrors that figure so prominently in children's tales symbolize the perilous aspects of the unconsciousness...J.E.Cirlot

Canada and theForests

Canada's boreal forest is the largest contiguous intact forest left on Earth and the second largest frontier forest. It covers 35 percent of the country's land area and is home to the world's largest caribou herd, the second -highest wolf population, and polar, black and grizzly bears. About three billion birds nest there each year. (Source: David Suzuki Foundation)

Tree Proverbs

The oldest tree often bears the sweetest fruit.  German Proverb
One generation plants the trees, and another gets the shade.  Chinese Proverb
We are the same as plants, as trees, as other people, as the rain that falls.
We consist of that which is around us, we are the same as everything. Buddha

If you climb up a tree, you must climb down the same tree.
