I aggressively and with some degree of (perhaps misplaced) confidence, I construct my learning spaces. Multiple tools, formats, disquiet, utility, all torn with rough strife towards learning of some sort. I assemble them, deconstruct them with ease and regularity and look to embrace the liminality of border crossings and boundary renegotiation. The only way out is through and that is essentially an embrace of the disquiet and disorientation of not knowing what one is doing. I am reminded of this embrace of disorientation when I think of the following Winston Churchill quote:
“If you are going through hell, keep going.”
