Thoughtful Thursdays, GED WiP, Adulting education

I just wanted to share that I am planning to turn my lesson plans into a book, freely available, of course, so that they will be more easy to access all at once. Action Items: 1.) If you have a moment, I’d love it if you could flip back through my lesson plans thus farContinue reading “Thoughtful Thursdays, GED WiP, Adulting education”

Thoughtful Thursdays, Publications and Workshops I’ve given, and alternative libraries

The common good and the general welfare require libraries in order for our society to become more fully inclusive for all of us.   Public libraries, conventional brick-and-morter, as well as newer sorts of libraries, like Tiny Libraries and internet based libraries like that of Project Gutenberg and The Archive (thank you Canada, for hosting it!),Continue reading “Thoughtful Thursdays, Publications and Workshops I’ve given, and alternative libraries”

Moody Mondays, Community Cooperation, and Adulting Education

As part of the responsibility for knowing how cooperation had previously taken place in order to improve cooperation in our present and future, I recommend that you read my free and short book: – Seeking reviews for my second book, available for free, on Community Cooperation and shared history in the Nation’s Capital (applicable allContinue reading “Moody Mondays, Community Cooperation, and Adulting Education”

Thoughtful Thursdays, writing, and community vs. self-Health Care

This post dates from almost exactly five years ago, during NaNoWriMo, while writing a mere 50k word novel (more like a novella) which I am very appreciative to see being read and even enjoyed by a fellow blogger of much loved virtual acquaintance. The process of writing this short novel took me through some introspectionContinue reading “Thoughtful Thursdays, writing, and community vs. self-Health Care”

Sacred Study Saturdays and community cooperation as Adulting Ed.

In Phase I of the Four Freedoms project, I think that free public continuing legal/financial education was a bit too narrow, hence I opened it up to be called Adulting Education, which is meant to include both the responsibility to arm oneself with the knowledge of local laws around debt, taxes, etc, and the responsibilityContinue reading “Sacred Study Saturdays and community cooperation as Adulting Ed.”

Discours: économie et democratie/Talk: Economic Democracy & Adulting education

Adulting being defined, if I understood correctly, as doing what adults ought to do, I suggest that finding out how locally issued currencies can help communities add to the existing money supply and allow more work to get done by and for local businesses. –   Voici un discours que j’ai donné sur les SELsContinue reading “Discours: économie et democratie/Talk: Economic Democracy & Adulting education”

Moody Mondays and Adulting ed. via my Theoretical Framework for Shared Monetary Governance

If we stretch the mandate of ongoing free legal and financial education (now aka Adulting Ed.) for all as part of Phase I of the Four Freedoms Movement, then academic work in this area is useful, right? My first article on Shared Monetary Governance (SMG) based on my MPhil/PhD thesis. Shira “Holocene Era” Dest, publishedContinue reading “Moody Mondays and Adulting ed. via my Theoretical Framework for Shared Monetary Governance”

Turkish Tuesday, orphans, and magical stories, like the 1001 Nights: which were NOT Turkish…

Orphans like Çilek still deserve protection, especially if they cannot do magic to protect themselves the way Harry Potter does!  But sometimes, a good story can save your life, if you live in a land where stories are currency, and can buy many things.  Turkey, by the way, is not one of the lands whereContinue reading “Turkish Tuesday, orphans, and magical stories, like the 1001 Nights: which were NOT Turkish…”

Moody Mondays and critical thinking about Biblical (im)migration as part of Health Care for all?

Mental and emotional Health Care, that is… This excerpt from my first practice novel comes as a response to a discussion about the reasons for the destruction of Sodom and G’morrah, from an ancient Rabbinical point of view (at least from one of the prevailing opinions). I incorporated part of this midrash (an allegorical orContinue reading “Moody Mondays and critical thinking about Biblical (im)migration as part of Health Care for all?”

Sacred Study Saturdays, going back to Parashat Noach, and language learning for Human Rights

…and worker’s rights, which are also Human Rights. (But why do I keep hearing Soon and Very Soon, from when I was in 3rd Grade?!!) — I wrote a story which seems to resonate now, given the passing of prop 22 in California, which I feel takes us further down the road of valuing moneyContinue reading “Sacred Study Saturdays, going back to Parashat Noach, and language learning for Human Rights”
