    Invitation to Learners 

    Here’s something you can participate in at your own pace and in your own time. I took four photographs that can be illustrative of a story alone, in combination, or all together. You can write a short story, make a photograph or short machinima.

    This is an experiment for me as I’ve never done anything like this. It’s outside of my comfort zone. But I’m willing to see how others might respond. If you want to participate and don’t have a WP blog,  no worries. There are details about note cards, etc. in the post.

      Awesome Pearl! I’m looking forward to this.

      Here is my story from your pictures, Pearl. Feel free to post it where you like.

      “Let me show you my movie” he said, fiddling with the projector. “It’s about a dog.”

      But she could see only a swirl of light against the screen.

      “Is this all?”

      He shrugged apologetically. “I had no script”

      “That can be remedied,” she said. (She was a practical woman). “I’ll just sit right here and type you one. You said it was about a dog?”

      “Yes, it’s about a dog”

      She clacked for awhile on the keys of the ancient typewriter. The script began to take shape. It was the story of a man, a woman, and a peculiar, overstuffed chair. It was the story of stairs that defied gravity and lead to the unknown. It was the story of a chandelier of cut crystal that forever danced its light across a dusty floor.

      “Thank you,” he said at last when she had finished and they were standing together at a respectful and chaste distance. “Thank you, But it was supposed to be about a dog.”

    A Greeting 

    Thank you to Izzy and V for their generosity and the exciting possibilities at M.U. this Spring.

    Am looking forward to presenting a curriculum under the subject of Café Sophistry, just as soon as the smirking barista delivers my croissant from the toaster oven (From my perspective, it is never toasted enough. She always claims it will burn. Are either of us ever really wrong?).

      I often find that arriving at Bacon Barista at the butt crack of dawn as I do, that the BB ovens have yet to reach full scorching temperature and I simply have my croissant, heavens, raw!

      Newton, you are an expert on philosophy?

    • Newton 18:55 on 26/01/2015 Permalink | Reply

      AlexandreLois1, I can only ask questions and provide some historic perceptions. I’m an expert at some of that.

      • Xue 22:12 on 26/01/2015 Permalink | Reply

        Oh, so the Socratic Method, then? So you are an “expert” on philosophy!

    • AlexandreLois1 01:25 on 27/01/2015 Permalink | Reply

      I thought exactly the sophists are philosophy
