There is absolute beauty in True Expression

Ask me anything   Submit   "Education is the point @ which we define whether we love our children enough not to expel them from our world and leave them to their own devices, not to strike from their hands their chance of undertaking something new - but to prepare them in advance for the task of renewing a common world." - [Hannah Arendt]
"[It] must, then, be not only a transmission of culture, but also a provider of alternative views of the world and a strengthener of the will to explore them." - [Jerome S. Bruner]

Me: Perpetual dreamer and explorer, hellbent optimist, educator, writer, and DO-er.

Head over heels devoted to the act of colorful expression and flowing with the moment naturally - be as you feel, negative or positive, and use it to propel you forward.

I like to maintain that identities change, ebbing and flowing like all else. it's a swirling pool of constant currents that mix and sometimes travel apart...

My passion is in hand with my devotion: it's simple but so powerful = EXPRESSION

ALSO AND MOST EXCITINGLY! I am at the helm of creating a new project for providing opportunities and INSPIRING conversation/communication/and relationships between neighbors, communities and nations! Which includes, most importantly, diligently working towards funding and providing awareness about the need to bridge educational and cultural gaps between our rapidly growing diverse communities of children.

In order for our futures (our children) to better navigate the world in which they are growing up in, a world that is - even in becoming smaller and tighter - still full of misunderstandings and simple lack of communication, it is essential to give them to tools to effectively, creatively, and vividly communicate their message to each other and to us. To inspire our children, AND the post pubescent to revive a sense of innocent but POWERFUL curiosity in exploring and discovering their neighbors - using conversation that VIVIDLY expresses the natural wildness, unpredictability, and absolutely amazingness that is life and all that it entails, using the idea of conversation as BOUNDARY-LESS - communication happens in all forms.

With play and lighthearted creative collaboration, help me stoke the conversation!

Come check back on how the project unfurls! - The Common Thread/Positively Elementary!

    "Many people dedicate their lives to actualizing a concept of what they should be like, rather than actualizing themselves.
    This difference between self-actualization and self-image actualization is very important. Most people live only for their image"
