Now I am feeling more balanced!
Whilst I have loved the information literacy, the research methodologies, the knowledge systems and organisation, the leadership and followship. I was starting to feel a bit one-sided: and now I know why. I was missing the joy and satisfaction of just reading and losing myself in the story. Then there is that unlooked for/unexpected learning that sometimes happens when reading for pleasure – a deep truth revealed that is stunning in its simplicity.
It was so good to find context and explanations for this among the readings and in the course notes and I nearly fell off my chair when reading Rosenblatt (1978).
I know I might have said it before, but I am so pleased that I have left the best ’til last!
