Interests: A MANIFESTO FOR THE VISUAL IMAGE Be brave, audacious, and creative in delivering compelling, high-quality online teaching productions. Audio, photography, video, and language facilitate these digital learning strategies. Here are visual insights and solutions for creating new learning. There is an Indian proverb or axiom that says that everyone is a house with four rooms, a physical, a mental, and emotional, and a spiritual. Most of us tend to live in one room most of the time but, unless we go into every room every day, even if only to keep it aired, we are not a complete person. — Rumer Godden The objective is to develop positive audience engagement with a supportive online community. Using the literary device of anthropomorphism and personification psychological wellbeing stories exemplify key themes. What is your story?

Choose a word with four obscure meanings Eddy spoke on his take on NIRVANA and gave us several different meanings. This was evaluated by James James then spoke on the meaning of the word Retrogradation. Was it describing the orbit of the planets, the illusion of going up hill when actually going downhill or did it refer to the London sewers. The first meaning was the correct one. This speech was evaluated by Jane Jane spoke about the meaning of the word Bressener. Was it describing an early version of the Bra or was it a Timber Load bearing Beam or, was it the name of a Scottish Country Dance. After some discussion this word was identified correctly as a Load Bearing beam. Joyce evaluated Jane Joyce described the word Strobilus. The three meanings Joyces gave us was that a, it referred to Bellringing; b, a strong beam of light and c, a Fruit or vegetable with overlapping scales. It was, of course, the later description. Lara evaluated Joyce Lara described the word Limerence. Was it a state of Foolishness, a state of Narcissism or a state of Obsession. The last meaning was deemed correct. Albert evaluated Joyce Albert then gave four meanings of the word Tendentious. Firstly, was it a pain, an inflammation of tendons; was it the defence of Imperial measurements; was it an Amazonian Porcupine ; was it a bias in an argument. Clearly the last meaning was deemed correct. John evaluated this amusing presentation. John then described three meanings of the word Gift. Avoiding the obvious one, he asked whether it was a the German for Poisson, Serbo-Croat for a poisonous snake or was it Hebrew for Faith All chose the last description but the German meaning is correct. David evaluated John David introduced us to the word Fonticulus. After saying that meanings change over time, he put three meanings to us. Was it a Harry Potter spell, the study of typeface or the depression just below the breastbone. This last meaning is correct. Eddie evaluated David Continue reading

John – Four Ladies one old three young. + This photograph reminded the speaker of his grandmother and the clothes shown in the photograph were very similar to the clothes that the family still had in their possession.

Grabbing my hands, with the raiders storming up the stairs, Leif and Magnus gingerly lowering me out of the window, with the old world ending.

May I never experience the miasma from hells infernos of the Continue reading

These are the worst scene from the nightmares haunting my early life. May I never experience the miasma from hells infernos of the burning stench of human flesh and panicking, baying animals escaping flaming barns. Stumbling along a forest path with night birds guiding and flanking our paths to safety, a parliament of tawny owls scouting the escape route. Bats sonic screeching helping by spotting hazards and trees. A chorus of pigeons herding the fleeing refugees. Continue reading
