a starting point

I’ve been staring at this blinking cursor for over 15 minutes now, and I promised myself I’d write something today, so I’m typing this sentence to get things started.

It’s not really that I don’t have anything to say, it’s that I have too much to say – a feeling of overflowing fullness following a week of learning at #tmc18, coupled with a yearning to dig in to so much more I can’t believe I haven’t learned yet. I’ve been reading a lot. I have a lot on my list left to read, and some partners committed to processing things with me so that I am held accountable to move beyond thought to dialogue, action, fighting for a better and more equitable future for all.

The enormity of the work we have ahead of us is daunting. So for tonight, as the hour gets later and I anticipate another full day tomorrow, I will take the advice of Chris Nho:

“Come to a stopping point. Maybe you just learned some things about the problem. That’s fine.”

More soon.
