What does your name sound like using code-x.live. This is another #SelfieUnSelfie project. Providing the letters of my name but hearing like never before. This echos the experience of children experimenting with language and sounds. Is this poetry?

Round three? Maybe
I took the photo in the middle of this image yesterday and used it as inspiration for my daily doodle. Such beautiful flowers, fading so fast as we are home all day with the heating on at the moment. Today I used it for the daily create. Here’s what I did: Cropped it slightly, then uploaded it to Lunapic and added a filter (beauty). Downloaded the result to my PC Opened Powerpoint and inserted the original image, resizing it to […]
Find a photo (a bunch of tulips, opening and dropping their petals quickly in this heated room) Open it in Paint (it’s easy, and familiar) Spend ages deciding what words to use (in the end I Google “flower, quote”) Paste a few words onto the image and save Undo, paste the next few words, save with a new file name Repeat for the whole quote Head over to Giphy.com Upload all of the images and make a gif Save to […]
It’s been the best of years, it’s been the worst of years. I’ve done lots, and have not done more. One thing I have done every day this year though is the Daily Create. @NomadWarMachine @dogtrax @ronald_2008 Congratulations! #DS106 pic.twitter.com/77DprNL06h — john johnston (@johnjohnston) December 31, 2018 It’s been fun, it has done me good, and I would highly recommend it to you all. Happy New Year, all.
As I read Anna’s post about how she is struggling to find the patience to read, I thought about how I knit. Specifically, I thought about how often I turn my knitting projects into races – how instead of enjoying the process of knitting, I rush to get them finished and off the needles. Here’s an example: the shawl above is one that I started in order to have some easy knitting for when my mind or my hands were tired, […]
There’s so much emphasis at the moment in active learning, often accompanied with the (implicit) belief that this needs to be a collaborative activity. I think both are important, and also enjoyable – but sometimes peace and solitude are just as productive, if not more. Today I have spent time in my kitchen away from social media – chopping fruit and veg for relish, stirring together chocolate and nuts for fudge, churning yogurt and vanilla for ice cream and then […]
Today’s dots – a freshly baked batch of oatcakes. Time is of the essence with these – they need to be quickly mixed together and rolled out while the dough is still warm, else the mixture sets and becomes unworkable. In addition, the more it is rolled out, the harder it is to use, so these are imperfect – quickly cut out and put onto a baking tray. They won’t last long anyway – they are too tasty, we have […]
We’re all thinking about dots. Sheri reminds us that this is not a new conversation. Terry responds and starts teasing out the metaphor. Dots and lines, or overlapping circles? Maybe both, maybe more. We don’t have the words to represent to ourselves this complex conceptual scheme. (A recurring memory: in a philosophy of science lecture we are described as three dimensional slices of four dimensional space-time worms.) Wendy sees pictures in poems. I see pictures in my head – pictures I […]
