The Power of Uncertainty
Journal of Reading
Publisher: Newark, Del: International Reading Association
-the notion that uncertainty is a groundless place or the place to plant something, anything
-who says this or that or how much?
-it is the place that can swallow you or the place that embraces all that can be
-this is a principle that must be befriended early in life
-how can one give or encourage another to remain open to uncertainty?
-what footing or what kind of pivots exist that can shift, change weight or attitude in one’s mind to allow
for discovery, reaching out or reaching in to facilitate a new understanding?
-I used to see courage as essential before taking a step into faith
-and then faith can act as a talisman to offset fear, attract hope
-but our culture does not rest on talismans or ideologies as it once did - parent to child systems are not
as coded or structured
-what kinds of behaviour/personality/systems are nurtured to strengthen one’s approach towards
growth/learning/living with uncertainties?
