Checking back into @Mastodon . How have things been here lately?
@Downes What benefits do you obtain here?
@bryanalexander I don't think of Mastodon in terms of benefits. It's a community I can chat with. It is fluid and evolving. Sometimes there's a lot of activity; sometimes there's none. I like that the people here aren't trying to sell me things. I like that it's relaxed.
@Downes all right. That sounds pleasant.
A community I can think with. At a scale I can live with. A place where being away is noticed, but understood and accepted. A space to restore and recharge, to remember and reflect on the things that really matter.
(Feeling very thankful right now. 🌻 )
On a similar topic, I've been a little quiet because I've been writing about y'all & here again. https://smallstories.trubox.ca/weaving-quicksilver-we-searching-for-a-pedagogy-of-small/
Prompted be @tellio , I'm sharing, widening the circle & inviting feedback via hypothesis (or any other means). I'm also thinking of turning the smallstories wp site into a 'we-search' hub... (All thoughts welcome)
@Downes @tellio @fgraver @lauraritchie @katebowles @bryanalexander @ShorterPearson @dogtrax @Tdorey ... what an interesting thought and concept. If I look at what happens in https://youngwritersproject.org it is ENTIRELY about harmony -- how kids relate to each other in a way that is supportive and respectful, while maintaining inquisitiveness and voice. So as a definition of pedagogy -- while small is part of the equation -- harmony is really the essence. Thank you, Stephen. geoff
