  28. 28. Observing and Describing This disposition is about noticing and communicating impressions. Routines in this area emphasize careful and deep observation, self-awareness, and detailed description.
  29. 29. Why call this disposition the disposition to Observe and describe ? (Why include description?) In order to mobilize observations– to put them to work in the service of understanding – we have to describe them to ourselves. Often, description is the mechanism by which observation occurs. The act of describing something causes us to look closely, look again, and look anew.
  30. 30. Modes of observation --the faculties through which we receive impressions. The senses – eyes, ears, touch, etc. – give us physical impressions The intellect/mind – gives us mental impressions The heart/ spirit/ conscience – gives us emotional, ethical, spiritual impressions Modes of description --the different forms in which we express our observations. Verbal Written Visual Kinesthetic Aural How do observation and description happen -- Where do they take place?

Her accomplishments led to a life of drama and romance on a grand scale. She became a celebrated portrait painter at the court of Philip II of Spain.
