    In response to the ds106 Video Assignment “Six Second Art” I created a simple little picture. Onto the blank paper and a little water, drizzle in the color of the forest. And, lo, a fox appears. Or a wolf. Or maybe a “folf” fox-wolf hybrid. Bred for its skills in magic. Inspired by the assignment […]

    Do I Stay or Do I Go?

    In response to the Daily Create “#tdc1487 Fork in the Road,” this is the image I snapped of a choice.  This is one of those black-and-white, yes-or-no choices all of us are faced with each and every day.  The light turns yellow. Either step on the gas, charge through, and travel the path faster…or brake instead […]

The opening chapter of “New Literacies: Everyday Practices and Social Learning” by Colin Lankshear and Michele Knobel concentrates mainly on this question as the authors explore the changing use of the term “literacy” over the past 50 or so years. The authors describe the move in […]

    Just Look Up

    For days I carried around my camera tasked with finding a good shot for the ds106 Daily Create “Take a picture of something ordinary you thought is super beautiful.” The possibilities were endless and I was pumped to find that perfect picture of something drab, homely or mundane, which – with the right romantic lighting […]

    Number One

    Well here I am!  About to launch this blog.  Feeling blankish.  Sir Philip Sidney says it all: Loving in truth, and fain in verse my love to show, That she, dear she, might take some pleasure of my pain. Pleasure might cause her read, reading might make her know, Knowledge might pity win, and pity […]
