Friday Feature: “Wise Way Tribe”
|February 17, 2012||Posted by Luschka under Friday Features, Misc|
**I’m scaling down to one blog feature a week for a little while, so as to take the pressure off during this having a baby/baby moon phase.**
I love Wise Way Tribe. It’s such a refreshing blog, and Elena’s self-depreciating tone always makes me smile. It’s not that she has a low self-esteem or anything, it’s just that the way she sees the world and comments on it is so amusing to me. Not necessarily funny, but amusing. There’s defiance, whistfulness, longing and passion in her writing. Her blog posts are generally short reads, succinct and to the point. Sometimes they’re about nothing particular. Nothing other than how she’s feeling – which of course has value in and of itself. Other times they’re about things she feels strongly about, like breastfeeding being a right, not a choice or ear piercing.
Elena is an adult educator, just like me in life before children, and I love reading about her joy and passion in helping people who want to learn something learn it. There’s such a difference between teaching people who have to be there and teaching people who want to, and Elena’s posts on the matter spark a memory in me – I loved the feeling at the end of a class when people left happy. It’s why I’ve started up teaching again, albeit a very different subject and audience.
Elena also has an introspective mind, and she seems to read a lot. Her musings on these and other things often come out in her Speaking of Spirit series, which are like bitesize tasters into other ways of thinking.
Again, I find it refreshing and stimulating, and think if you stopped by for a visit you’d agree.
