I have a few conversations within global communities monthly/weekly to make sense and learn together.
“Communities of practice are groups of people who share a passion for something that they know how to do and who interact regularly to learn how to do it better.”

Crafting artefacts related to learnability development: a book and learning experiences. Stay tuned.
“A search on ‘what is creativity’ brought me to a post on the Creativity At Work site. It was a little disheartening. The bar was raised by their opening definition:
Creativity is the act of turning new and imaginative ideas into reality. Creativity is characterised by the ability to perceive the world in new ways, to find hidden patterns, to make connections between seemingly unrelated phenomena, and to generate solutions. Creativity involves two processes: thinking, then producing.”

Going in-depth into disciplines I focus on.
“Piper begins his Bach speech by examining our age-old preoccupation with pinning down the elusive source of music’s singular enchantment:
Not only is music one of the most amazing and mysterious phenomena of all the world’s miranda, the things that make us wonder (and, therefore, the formal subject of any philosopher…) [but] music may be nothing but a secret philosophizing of the soul… yet, with the soul entirely oblivious, that philosophy, in fact, is happening here… Beyond that, and above all, music prompts the philosopher’s continued interest because it is by its nature so close to the fundamentals of human existence.” — Josef Piper via Maria Popova
I do my biking/fitness every other day. With the second lockdown in France, we can go out one time per day to do our individual sport for one hour only and not beyond one km. Autumn is a lovely season of the year for strolling as well, gaining clarity and staying sane in a crazy world.
Winter will come in a few weeks.
“In the middle of winter, I discovered that there was an invincible summer inside me, and that makes me happy, because this says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, inside me there is something stronger, something better, pushing back. ” — Albert Camus
