I love magazines and love to flick and read through them. Here’s one I read that is a lot of fun. Lots of colour, stories, book & film recommendations (historical of course). This one is mainly about Catherine of Aragon. Apparently they have a festival on her in Peterborough...
Everything is laid out over couple of pages. You can see bigger picture,timelines,links. It makes me realise reading it on internet on a screen has depth but unless it’s presented visually or interlinked in some way I don’t “get it”. Stops me from going down rabbit warrens too.
So if this was online, all these would have been deep links to other sites and I would have gone down them thus losing my way. I’d have to return to main page to go back down into depth again. The latter hardly happens as invariably it takes me down other paths.
Sometimes you just need to keep yourself at the “high level” to see things from “above” and then decide what you think you need to delve into for depth. I think this is my problem with my thinking for sometime. I don’t allow time to see “across” things but dive in without a plan.
As a result I get lost. Sure I find some awesome stuff, (wonderful in fact)that has helped me see links to other things but I feel that it’s incomplete. I don’t have wider story, players, situation, context. I want to be able to “say the story in generalities”
Guess why I don’t think I would have been a good teacher. (& why during performance reviews at work I was told by managers in past I “lack strategic thought”. Teachers have this skill. I’m constantly asking “why” trying to find reasons as to why things are the way they are.
