Do You Inhabit The Third Space

Do You Inhabit The Third Space
The Third Space

I love encountering books that expand my understanding of my actions and specifically how I conduct myself in relationship to others. The Third Space, by Adam Fraser (Random House 2012), is such a book. For me, the main focus of the book was the importance of becoming thoughtful about transitioning.  This is the Third Space of the title – the time we spend switching between first and second space (where I am currently, to where I want to be).

Each time I read another chapter in the book I observe an excitement in me about the possibilities that I can create for myself in my personal and professional life. Thus transitions that I make must be meaningful to me.

Local Editorial Love

Local Editorial Love
Hot off the press

Our very own Laidley newspaper, “The Valley Weekender”, has kindly given us a local editorial feature in their first 2013 edition.

The newspaper publishes each fortnight, and includes local news, events, and articles about Laidley and Lockyer Valley residents, and towns.

The 18th January, 2013 edition includes features about the Laidley swimming pool, a pilot programme for a local bus service, mention of a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party at the Laidley Library and some great ideas to celebrate Australia Day.  Where else are you going to find details Yabby Races and Dunny Races. There’s even an article about the Miss Pinup Australia contest entrant, Miss Sheree Sherbet, for those who just love all things vintage.  We wish Miss Sheree well for the State Finals in February.  We’re proud to be in such fine company in this publication, and excited that local folks will learn of Davaar’s training and workshops this way.

The Times they aren’t a changin’

They knew that, back then?

Hello fellow travellers of interesting ideas and curious wonderment.

I have included in this entry an extract from the inestimable The Times newspaper from 1853, cited in a book I am currently reading:

The Times - 1853

Nothing can be more slightly defined than the line of demarcation between sanity and insanity. Make the definition too narrow, it becomes meaningless, make it too wide, and the whole human race becomes involved in the dragnet. In strictness we are all mad when we give way to prejudice, to vice, to vanity: but if all the passionate, prejudiced and vain people were locked up as lunatics, who is to keep the key to the asylum? Cited in Summerscale, (2008:342).
