Lina, Vesna, Lois et al.

I have enjoyed your voices so much! My grandchildren are visiting for
the holidays. My hopes for their future are so high yet I sometimes
despair at what I see happening in the world. Do you have some concrete
advice for me? The 60's and 70's when I raised my children seem like
simpler times. I thought of schools as a partner, not an enemy to be
supplemented "afterwards". Life was not something "after school".
Perhaps my memory is failing!

Lina, Yes and you helped me to say that there are different
It is really good when we are faced with interruptions that happened
this network (Harold Pinter, Sidney and Mc McCarthyism) and will happen
again tomorrow, and the day after tomorrow. The fact that any
could be interrupted by such events is promising not only for
involved but for building Extended Mind.
You also wrote about interruptions related directly to your work
I also wrote about interruptions caused by war, ethnic violence, NATO
bombing and what was our response to that.The historical and cultural
approach of Lev Vygotsky did help us to transform "to be or not to be"
dilemma into "how to be". His study of children's play is fascinating
helped us to build common activities with children, adults, elderly etc.
