less is definitely better, if you ask me. one or two places on the web, and a real life to live.
but then I would say that wouldn't I?

When I was a kid, I got a small flower in a small vase and assumed the commitment to take care of it...
so.. has flowers need of lots of air, sun and watter, each time I passed by the flower I would arranje the vase so it would get better sun, and would pour some water...

I really don't know if she died because the roots got rotten from too much water, or too much sun...

too much is worst than too much... but even worst is trying too hard and not have a sense of when we are overdoing whatever we are doing...

I was inspired to write a blog post from your comment Bev. http://tinyurl.com/2ebsln

How are you? Happy New Year! I actually took a week for the holidays without a computer and I survived and enjoyed the time away. My online friends greeted me back with welcoming arms when I twittered back.

Beverly Trayner

Yes LP ... I'm learning from you!

the overcared-for flower is a great image, João. And yes, I have to develop a better sense of being able to step outside myself and make an assessment of where the too much is going.

I loved your post Robin. And Happy New Year to you too! A great start if you managed it without the computer. And hooray for twitter friends, regardless of whether less is better.

  • My name is Bev Trayner and I live in Setúbal, Portugal. The focus of my research and practice is designing for learning in distributed communities. I am particularly interested in connecting people in international communities. Key words are: communities of practice, learning, meaning-making, inclusion, multiliteracies, Portugal, and Web2.0 technologies. Keeping a blog helps me navigate my way through different practices and world views. Phronesis includes pondering on the specifics and the universal. It follows on from my previous blog "Em duas línguas".
