I've not decided what to read next on my Kindle, so I'm just going with the half-read bell hooks from our readings.

It's a good book.

And I also need to keep reading bell hooks for the (radical pedagogy) reading group as well.

I need to make myself a schedule of some kind.

I'm actually enjoying rewriting notes from Freire, even if it'll take a while, but I accept that. I'm mostly just making notes where I made highlights.

I may share some later.

I chose a notebook. And I'm starting with writing based on notes from the previous book worked through. Because I'm obsessive about having things in "order".

And I'm going out as a warm up, for the book we're currently reading.

Homework time!

(RP = Radical Pedagogy)

I think who begin the first chapter of our current book will appreciate the irony that I just finished reading Thich Nhat Hanh's the Miracle of Mindfulness today. And that was the 2nd book I just referred to having finished... 😋

I've finished 2 of 4 books I'm aiming for this month.

But I think I'll be able to do more due to me doing all of October.

And got a whole book to read for my reading group.

I think maybe will appreciate this thread this week.

And a bunch of the rest of you.


Read a big chuck of the book today.
I'm quite exhausted, but it's definitely giving me thoughts. That I probably am not going to be able to share today.


Hey, this video goes very well together with chapter 2 of the book we're reading atm!

Additional thoughts about Freire and accessibility 

I don't feel like the text is very accessible. And this may be because English is my 2nd language. 🤷‍♀️I'm not sure.

And as a spoonie, I feel like we could definitely put in some work to make this text more accessible to other spoonies.
A lot of us suffer from brain fog, and making texts more accessible can be done in a few ways. I'd definitely want to discuss it with anyone who's interested.

I finished chapter 1 of The Pedagogy of the Oppressed today.

And it's making me think a lot about today. And what we need to do.

Recognizing our shared humanity is step one. Then showing love towards each other comes as a fairly natural follow-up.

This isn't too say that we can't feel rage, and display rage, and use the required violence to reach our goals.

But Step one, is to recognize other oppressed people as human. Undo the dehumanisation that's so strongly ingrained in the current structures.

Interesting enough it actually connect well for me with The Pedagogy of the Oppressed.

I love it when you're reading different things, things that may seem completely different and they just end up connecting.

So from that perspective I'd recommend it for anyone in the

I'm going to dip back into Radical Pedagogy with the Pedagogy of the Oppressed today.

Not sure how much I have spoons for, but I'm going to try. I've already read the preface and foreword etc.
