"Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand -- and melting like a snowflake." -Marie Beyon Ray
My blogging has been sporadic recently, due to a number of factors.
I've retired from my position as a teacher/librarian and continue to evaluate my goals, prioritize my time, and try to determine what direction(s) my life should take.
It's also summer, a normally less-structured season for me, when impromptu trips and outdoor rambles tend to supercede online sessions.
The question is: do I want to continue blogging? If so, of what should my subject matter consist?
"Everyone who got where he is had to begin where he was." -Richard L. Evans
Although I'm no longer a classroom teacher, I'm still interested in education issues, both as a professional and as a citizen/taxpayer. Through my editing and facilitating duties at CyberSmart, and via numerous social networking sites (on Facebook, Twitter, and Plurk as dmcordell), I interact directly with educators. Their concerns remain my concerns: how do we best enable students to learn; how can we keep apace of technology and use it in all aspects of our lives; how do we remain active lifelong learners?
"When you cease to make a contribution, you begin to die." -Eleanor Roosevelt
My daughter asked if I planned to begin a new blog, but I feel that Journeys: Adventures in Life and Learning is still relevant. If my perspective has changed, my "mission" has not. I'll still be exploring and, hopefully, growing.
You're welcome to journey with me!
