About Me

From my journal entry on August 26, 2002:

The class at Alexian Village took an interesting turn. At the start of the class, I asked everyone to write their name on one side of a folded index card and their birthdate on the other side.

The class was a practicum for memory – memory exercises to emphasize repetition and attention. After the first series – the names of the seven dwarfs in Snow White – we worked on birthstones. It turned out that Joanna used to own a jewelry store. She became the expert for the exercise! This was a real Aha! for me.

How easy it is when one of the learning partners in attendance takes charge of the learning. I can sit back and enjoy the process.
