I think, this is one of the more important books I’ve picked up this year. It deeply resonates with me, much like Place, Being and Resonance. But for a different reason. This book has helped me come more to terms with my identity. I feel more comfortable with who I am, and why I am. Place being and resonance, allowed me to move more into who I want to be, but this book allows me to question about the who and why of my identity.
I am going to incorporate some of these ideas into my dissertation, specifically the mapping, but I want to see what I can do with the students. What can I ask fo them to understand more about how they relate to the environment.
I haven’t finished this book yet, I hope to soon, but with end of term, report cards, life happening it’s hard to actually get into the thick of it, and figure out if they can see where they come from.
I understand, in part, that we are a product of place, community and our actions, I understand, in part, that these things work together. So far this book has helped me better understand how those three aspects interact to form and reform my identity.
