Routine

“The moment we enter into a routine we are dead.”

-Amelia Gambetti

It takes a certain disposition to be able to continually move away from a place of satisfaction and comfort, and enter into situations of complexity and uncertainty.

I am thinking about the culture of education in America, where certainty and authoritative knowledge-giving are the norm, and ambiguity all but non-existant in our schools.

I am also thinking about the role of the Hundred Languages and their potential to counter the pervasive routine and complacency as, by nature, the expressive languages offer the opportunity to share differences and newness.
