I literally get excited, occasionally emotional too, when I read someone else’s thoughts and they match or challenge my beliefs. I get restless and my head starts spinning with ideas. My close family members know when I am in that mode. They know I am not available then… For many years I realise now I was ‘stuck’. I was only challenged by own thoughts on education and learning. (My husband could do so much nodding and trying to engage but, like me when he talks about mountain biking, there is a limit…)
My Twitter ‘acquaintances’ and most of all those active #aussiED participants have been like having a group of friends always handy when I have craved an interesting conversation but have been too busy with the routine to spare the time to set up and get out for an in person chat.
