Deaf geographies, and other worlds.
One good thing about only posting sporadically to this blog is that, when I disappear for a few days, no-one worries.
The last few days of absence were, unfortunately, a bit more serious than me just being busy.
I fell off my bike on the 28th November into the path of a Ford Focus, which then drove over me.
Somewhat miraculously – having spent a few harrowing moments staring at the underside of the engine… and then a few uncomfortable days getting the use of my ribs back, less than a couple of weeks later, I’m back at work…
Thanks to all who have expressed good wishes.
I’ve had a good think about priorities in the time off, and while nothing has changed particularly, I’m even more determined to make sure that I don’t simply drift – ticking off years of time without actually getting back to the heart of what I want to do.
My friend Austin Kocher recently wondered… “Is there anything more exciting than learning something new?”
I don’t think there is… unless, perhaps when that learning then takes you to passing on that knowledge to others and seeing them also learn it, engage with it, and then take ownership of it, and start to move it in new directions.
Research, writing, dissemination, collaboration, exploration, discovery.
Love it 🙂
