Sample text

She got me several times even though, due to illness, I wasn’t at school all that often. Seems attentiveness wasn’t a strong point for me. Now I may just be making excuses but I’d like to think my inattentiveness in class masked an attentiveness of another kind. School certainly did not hold my attention; but life did. I’ve known many children who were fascinated by life but not by school; my own included. I can’t help feeling that the attentiveness valued at school is too often contrived. The goal seems to be compliance, not curiosity; an attentiveness without presence.

Knowing is tipping things into the bucket. Language is labelling what’s in the bucket. Change is swapping things in and out of the bucket. And relationships, well, maybe that’s putting things into the bucket nicely. I hope you know I’m joking! Life and language, knowing and relating, are obviously infinitely subtler than my silly bucket analogy. Yet in many ways we were taught to see these big ideas that way. I use ‘naming’ to hold these big ideas together in a way that I hope is far more human.

[36] We don’t need and can’t have a complete view of anything. Rather, we move between the one and the many — the pattern or principle and the specifics of a given context — searching for insight.
