What I'm reading

"If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking." - Haruki Murakami

Check out what I'm reading, and tell me what you've read lately.


What I've Been Thinking About...

...What is hope? Where does it come from?

       ...Could genuine curiosity change poverty and inequalities?

              ...How do we know if our efforts are hurting more than helping?

                   ...Is changing ourselves truly the first step in changing the world?

                        ...What part does love, and the way we define it, play in all of this?  


Paolo Freire said, "Love is simultaneously a foundation of dialogue and dialogue itself, because inherent in love 

is a commitment to others and the world, the kind of commitment that authentic teaching and learning entails."

                                                WHAT ARE YOU THINKING ABOUT?
