Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - Fear as Fuel in Times of Uncertainty

« The Netflix Redemption | Main | 50 Job Resources for Makers »


the book was an elementary school textbook, you know, those with all kinds of subjects in them. They decided to keep it - probably had to do with a deal with the publisher already made. Which is how I started my habit of exploring the subject matter on *other* books, many others, in fact. it was the beginning of my love affair with research and seeking differing points of view. So, in the end, it was a step that liberated me from just learning for the test. Very worthwhile.

In some ways I was more daring at that age... now I see more ways/opportunities to be daring, though.

thank you for the note on the banner, Davina.

I noticed, when I speak, that people actually think mostly about themselves watching me - the conversation in their heads. It takes a degree of connecting and intimacy for those eyes to actually see "me".
