Recent things on my mind:

  • Read: The Great Derangement by Amitav Ghosh. A fantastic account of the world to challenge your view of climate change, even if you’re a veteran. Worldview-changing.
  • Listen: Little Boot‘s Tomorrow’s Yesterdays. Nostalgic, pop-py, cool, indie dance.
  • Eat: Vistro CaféIt’s healthy and delicious and I can eat it with more vegan mum.

Intention: Why are we doing this work?

Framing: Asking Open-ended questions, ask for stories, ask for emotional reactions (marker of something important)

Talking about sensitive topics. Easier if there is trust built through connections, friends of friends.

  • Culture
  • Conversation
  • Context

5 why’s. “Why” in Thai seems very accusing. Instead of “why” in Thai, I ask “what were the reasons you were doing this?”
