Some weekend reading

Cheonggyecheon River

This weeks’ weekend reading doesn’t have any theme (besides being posts that have caught my eye over the week). There are some reflections on asset-based thinking, high school ethics, nonviolence, anxiety and playing with food. Make sure you look at the photos of the river that has replaced a drain under freeway in Seoul; it’s amazing what we can do when we put our mind to it.

Leading by stepping back by William Lilley – Some reflections exploring the spread of asset-based thinking across housing, health and adult social care.

High School Ethics Classes by Andrew Crosbie via St James Ethics Centre – a case for teaching ethics classes in high school.

Now I am 54 by Adrian Scott – I recently turned 54 too so went to this post to read about his experience. It turned out to be a powerful account of Severe Anxiety Disorder

At the end of the line from Living Adventurously Blog – Being asked if she would use violence to save a family member’s life in a workshop led to these reflections by Aletia Dundas.

Let Them Grow: Creating Child Friendly Food Experience by Candice Chouinard from Hilltown Families – playing with food is fun! Letting preschools learn from playing with food.

Walking the Cheonggyecheon in Seoul by Benjamin Habib – Ben takes a walk along a river that used to be a drain underneath a freeway. It’s well worth looking at his photos.
