if walking alone
I am lonely it is both
a place and a path
Thomas A. Clark
This was the haiku I found on my bag at todays writing in creative practice workshop at the University of the West of Scotland in Ayr. I will blog about the actual event – including why there were haikus on the bags – in a few days when I’m back at my computer, but these few lines made me think about the nature of this growing network… while it may sometimes feel like each of us is walking alone in the teaching and support we are providing in our respective posts at our respective universities, getting together for days like this, meeting in a place, allows us to share a path. And maybe even point out shortcuts (or detours) to each other.
Today new friends were made, the network got a bit bigger and the path might become a bit more travelled.
