Topic of the Week: Talking to the Other?

I started this piece a couple of days ago, based on one of my comments, Message No.5521, on transform_dom our dicussion forum. I had told Beau that we need to love the Other; and he had responded that love doesn't conquer all. I found myself agreeing with him, and struggling to find solid ground to start our course in Love 1A this Fall. But my words flew off to another software program where drawing and painting made it easier to share what I was feeling. This week's painting was my very hesitant response as I thought on Bakhtin's question, What shall I say when the Other can answer?

Arnold and I took out several hours. I went to Vroman's and bought more books, the better to consider love and evil and the measurement of facts we need to understand them. Right now, I've got to go write and upload the lectures you'll need to go with them. But I'll be back to this later. love and peace, jeanne

  • Letters of Recommendation:

    • Letters of Recommendation: How to get me to respond to your request. Many of you need letters. If you will follow this format, I can do them quickly and make them good.
    • Dog Letters If you do not give me adequate information, but do manage to get my attention, you may end up with a dog letter. That is a letter that says that you work well with people, that you are enthusiastic, that you persist at getting things done, and that everyone likes you. Of course, my dog gets along well with people, brings his ball to them, is enthusiastic, and persists at getting them to take his ball. Everyone likes my dog. That's a dog letter. It's so general it could be about my dog. jeanne

  • Career Options You Might Not Have Considered

    • visual media and their interdependence with other means of knowing to understand that we are not totally rational creatures deciding things apart from our feelings and values. Wolfowitz (new President of the World Bank to aid developing countries AND principle advocate of the Iraq War) might feel very differently when he is exposed to visual and aural images of the poor developing countries that have not before been his primary concern. So we want to know how best to present those developing countries visually. And we might find that we can have a career doing that sort of thing, so it does reflect on us as individuals.

That Was Fun! Sneaky Strokes and Flying Good Dogs

Flying Dog is also a painting by Zhang Kai. Best I've ever come across to illustrate our site with magic numbers and unicorns and whipped cream cats and now, flying dogs:
