Uncommon thoughts on common things

Discussion with Jim Mora on Critical Mass today was sparked by:

* 50 Reasons We’re Living Through the Greatest Period in World History by Morgan Housel at The Motley Fool.

* Robert Fulghhum’s Journal – he’s the author of All I really Need To Know I Learned In Kindergarten at the start of which you’ll find the Story Teller’s Creed which he posts here.

and

* A working mother writes to a stay at home mother and a stay at home mother writes to a working one by Carolyn Ee at Healthy Doctor.

    50 Reasons We’re Living Through the Greatest Period in World History

    Absolutely this is a golden age that surpasses all that have gone before and I am glad that my time coincides with it

    But golden ages do not last because those born into them cannot grasp the effort required to create them and maintain them.

    Exhibit

    A Dunedin solo mother is disappointed after Aoraki Polytechnic cut a course she was signed up to start next week, but neglected to inform her.

    Nikkita Burgess-Moyle, 24, had enrolled to start studying towards a certificate in media communication next week and had already bought course materials, only to learn yesterday it was one of two courses being cut at the polytechnic’s Dunedin campus.

    I got into the car just in time to hear the very last bit of your discussion, Ele. I had read the two letters (sahm mother and working mother) a few days ago, and I thought that they captured some real truths about each situation. Nice to read something so positive.
