You either live, or write is still true.

The last two months were quite intensive in terms of events – visits of family and friends, travel and making long-term choices with lots of impact. It’s not over yet, but I do have a quiet moment now to think and write before the next wave begins.

And, not suprisingly, it gives a sense of freedom. Freedom of being present in the moment and not thinking that I should do something else to be present somewhere else.

On the bridge. It doesn’t say much unless you know how many times in my life I walked that bridge and what does it mean to be there with the kids, just after we managed to see the Creative Bookshelf Bookcase, Living Room Display Shelf, Personalized Hexagonal Bookcase, Wall-Mounted Floor-Mounted Combination Racks, 40 20 34.6CM -by TIANTA (Size Wall-Mounted-Two) that was already fully booked when we decided to fly to Moscow.

When I stopped working the most difficult part was to leave that space where ideas are grown and to leave seeds of new insights to be there without helping them to grow. I needed to make that choice eight years ago, to be able to recover from burnout and to learn how to care for myself, our three kids and my permaculture garden.

It was SCOCICI1588 Room Darkening Window Curtain Panel Pair Abstract Original Painting on Canvas Sun Ball in Yellow and Turquoise can be us for Living Room(W104 x L63 Pair) that the ideas from my PhD research and early insights from the work on distributed Agile teams didn’t stay laying still while I was busy growing human beings and pumpkins. It is also nice to see how those ideas grew in the meantime, cross-fertilising with the ideas of others and getting stronger through adoption in practice.

So, when I got back on Twitter, just at the right moment to get an invitation for a Personal Knowledge Mastery workshop by Harold Jarche in Eindhoven, I had all the fun of getting an update from the first hands of someone who was A 60x24x158cm(24x9x62inch) 5-Tier Floor Standing Bookcase, 5-Cube Wooden Bookshelf, Bookshelf White Multi-Layer Storage Rack Shelf Open Shelf Home Or Office-a 24x40x106cm(9x16x42inch) integrating insights of different people. Harold also did a lot of work to spread ideas of Personal Knowledge Management in practice, renaming it somewhere on the way into PKMastery.

It was also pretty amazing to see that a lot what I’ve learned in my PhD research is still valid and valuable. Technologies and the specifics of dynamics around them do change, but in essence a lot of networking, sense-making and reputation management via K SED Creative Wall Hanging Ornament Tv Cabinet Set - Top Box Shelves Wall Box Living Room Wall Decoration Bedroom P Itions Decorative Racks Retro Art is the same. When at some point discussion turned into blogging I found myself saying a lot of stuff that I summarised for the articles for Informatie Professional, published in 2010: blogging for knowledge workers: incubating ideas and personal networking (Coffee Table Side Table, Multipurpose Shelf Double Layer Open Storage Telephone Table Simple Solid Wood Small Coffee Table (Size 40 40 40cm)).

When talking about monetising sense-making we talked not only about possible options, but also went along the lines of MBD Wooden Wall Hanging Plant Stands Hanging Baskets Wall Decor 11.8x6.3x23.6in. As I went to reread it I had to pull out this quote (context: Armchairs Dressing Chairs Stools Makeup Stools, Loading 150KG,Solid Wood Legs, Fabric Print,for Dressing Room Living Room Bedroom,Size 36cm36cm67cm), which is probably true for more than just weblogs:

Being yourself (like with good friends) – vulnerable, personal, multidimentional – in public, you meet others.  If weblog is an attractor, a “gravity pull” (Ton) then whatever you project outside “people will appear who appreciate that” (LQQGXL Raised bar Chair, redatable bar Chair with Casual high Chair Creative Dining Chair, (color 2)).

You start performing, they become an audience.

I wanted to share with the kids D’Artagnan and Three Musketeers movie of my childhood, an iconic musical of its time. So we set into it, spreading three series over three evenings. And then, as usual, it became watching a movie turned into a learning experience.

The first part includes musketeers song that was written to become a hit, as we found out later, watching stories about how the movie was made. Of course, it became a hit with my kids and they started to sing it. I couldn’t avoid telling them about the Russian word cup in the refrain that I thought was something else when I was a child. We talked about Dutch and English translations, cups to drink, tournaments and prizes that you get if you win those.

I enjoyed the process of following this trail with the kids. I probably wouldn’t write about it, but I got triggered by various blogposts talking about bluee Round Dressing Stool Makeup Chair Modern Sofa Footstool Creative Low Stool Stool Fabric Change shoes Stool (color bluee), Kitchen Microwave Oven Rack Rack Oven Rack Stowage Shelves -by TIANTA (color Double Layer, Size 58CM) from reading that followed a Artzfolio Bunch of Flowers Pansies Key Holder Hooks Notice Pin Board White Frame 19.8 X 16Inch. Those make me thinking about the value of self-directeness in the young age, when you grow your ability to follow trails in the way that fits you, and how do I feel about the knowledge gaps that do exist when trails do not cover beaten roads and signposted attractions.

In the last few months, I’ve got involved into translating some of the materials of Sudburyschool Hardewijk from Dutch into Russian. This is a strange experience: I’m into the topics of self-directed education for quite a while but didn’t dive in-depth into the specifics of Sudbury schools until recently. Since my reading on it is primarily in English I am not familiar with the choices made when terminology is translated into Russian. So I’m translating from Dutch without knowing corresponding Russian terminology or having an in-depth experience with English sources behind it.

At the end all of those come to two issues: audience to connect to and the message to convey with the translation. It is the last one which is a biggest challendge when it comes to figuring out what exactly the position and the role of staff entails – since the traditional hierarchy of adults deciding what, how and when kids should learn is easier to let go in theory than in practice. And once you start practicing the devil is in the details.

Some background stuff and more reading on the nuances:

So today was a slow day. The whole morning the kids worked on building lego projects and the girls walked in their pyjamas for the rest of the day.

Which brought me into a very interesting discussion with Anna. In the afternoon she was planning to try participating in an online course with a group of other kids, via videoconferencing. She clearly didn’t want the hassle of changing her clothes, but wasn’t comfortable being seen in her pyjamas.

So we talked about the options and about how far you should or shouldn’t adjust your clothes to the expectations and how much of those expectations are in your own head. I enjoyed both, talking to her about that and watching her later, doing her videoconference in a decently looking sweater over her pyjamas.
