…in ourselves Richard LiederInterviewed age 65+ world wide for 30 years: I f you could do your life over, what would you do different? 1)Be more reflective – step back & look at the big picture 2)Take more risks – not climbing mtns,… but of authenticity & voice in regard to relationships 3)Discern earlier in life what really matters 2 most important days... when you’re born - and when you … …figure out your place in the world notice

…in ed we think we have bang up lessons... but have we asked the kids? do they carry ideas outside the class? past the tests? do we hear global voices in our classrooms? do we speak their language, are we too busy insisting that they speak ours? are we too busy getting things done to notice. the bureaucracy we see on a day to day basis in our schools and in our classes is very similar to the bureaucracy we deal with when seeking global connections notice

…in health care what if the simple act of listening could diminish health problems? Tedmed 2010 spoke about this shift in thinking via @kevinmdDuring my training I was once asked in front of a patient to recite some respiratory physiology equation which, to my patient’s approval, I was able to do easily at the time. But I wanted to say to the attending physician, “Ask me, too, what this patient’s story is. I can tell you because I listened.I can tell you because I can put together and recreate a good narrative. And in the end it will help me take better care of this patient than knowing that equation.” what if many of the health care problems can be solved simply by increased authentic relationships notice
Dignity. Health. Joy. Love. Hope. The five things we wanted to spread while we were in Africa. We wanted the people there to experience all of the above but we were unaware and oblivious that we were experiencing all of it as well. Do they live in poverty? Politically, yes. They suffer from not having nearly as much things as we have. When I spent two weeks in Africa, the people there had more joy and more love than I have ever witnessed anyone have. I envied them. Are we in poverty? We’re missing something. It may not be toys or cars or giant houses. But it’s something. Needs? Relationships? Something. notice - Megan
…in collabing unfortunately for some.. we’re so far from noticing and listening - because we feel a compulsory urge to be global. so we go through the motions, and maybe it’s exciting, and maybe we even feel changed, .. but do we know each other? do we value each other... do we notice things that matter about and to each other.. notice
the master at listening... Ethan Zuckerman’s Global Voices: Sure, the web connects the globe, but most of us end up hearing mainly from people just like ourselves.

The Blue Sweater by Jacqueline Novogratz “Our collective future rests upon embracing a vision of a single world in which we are all connected” Chapter 13: “ In the course of history, there comes a time when humanity is called to shift to a new level of consciousness, to reach a higher moral ground. A time when we have to shed our fear and give hope to each other. That time is now.” Wangari Maathai one planet The Blue Sweater -going into space withI don’t know a single astronaut who actually thought he or she would see lines on the ground representing national borders when they arrived in earth-orbit. I do think however, that those of us who have looked back upon Earth share an increased realization that we are all in this together and that we all share a very fragile spaceship called Earth that we are all traveling through the Universe on together.
