By now I am sure that everyone heard about the Hugo controversy, when a group called “Sad Puppies” campaigned among their followers (which they gained, as I heard, for reasons unrelated to writing) to secure a bunch of nominations that have nothing to do with merit. Not only did it make the ballo...Read more of this blog post »

I've heard my Papaw quote that phrase countless times over the years. Granted, he's usually talking about finding a good parking spot, (and he always finds one closest to the store no matter what time of day it is).
Still, I've adopted his way of thinking. It's never gotten... Read more of this blog post »

For the rest of us, it can be pretty tough to fit in the things we WANT to do aro...Read more of this blog post »

Cartagena, abril 2015. Más de 600 personas, mayormente directores de escuelas de Brasil, México y Colombia se reúnen convocados por Sistema Uno Internacional. Realizan un cónclave. Buscan una “decisión transformadora” para la educación en Latinoamérica. Me invitan en calidad de outsider.
Il post di oggi nasce per imposizione, più che per scelta. Dopo avere per due volte tentato un argomento e averlo abbandonato, mi sono detta che probabilmente dovevo parlare d’altro, e precisamente di quello che ultimamente occupa una fetta piccola ma costante dei miei pensieri.
