backstory storyboard

what i see

perhaps we can’t optimize if we have
grouping by age
rules – if not created by people in community – and ongoingly
proof/credentials – as a means of value
perhaps we need to have (what’s missing – what we haven’t tried yet)
in the city (eclectic people/resources0
as the day (not after hours or added on)

conversation with Dave

[perhaps a good reveal because Dave has been a major mentor in all this]

my evaluative response to how i’ve met district goals and standards:

the vision of the lab, and the heart/soul i occupy, is that innovation (which we have come to interpret as simply – learning – connecting existing ideas to create, perhaps, a new connection), comes from people who are given the time and space to play.

the neocortex, the part of the brain that houses the elements described by the verbiage we use in our district performance standards and goals, shuts itself down when it feels threatened.

in progress, as always, we are working toward creating these mental/physical spaces of permission [to play - to innovate - to learn - to get optimal potential/operation out of our neocortex]. perhaps a vital element of these spaces, and one that we are working on an equitable emergence/accessibility of, is that in them, people have nothing to prove.

resign from district (that i love and hold in deep gratitude)
to model/swim in 100% -ness, of the thing i can’t not do, (hasten equity – shedding the shiny)
to keep doing what i’m doing (thank you for the phrase dl)
to free up district moneys (1/2 time salary) for full time lab salary
to relieve district peoples from stress caused- when my thinking seems too risky/wild//uncertain/whimsical for district mandates/policy/et al
remind myself – in the seemingly ridiculous-ness of this decision (particularly in regard to finances)..
The most rational thing to do is the irrational work of art.  – Seth Godin
[art being the thing you can't not do]
today i am alive. this is not ridiculous
