or afternoon for most.
i just finished a fresh tomato salad for lunch
a baguette with a square of cheese.
i wish i had an umbrella like that
i'll need it when i go outside in a bit
i understand montrealers
affinity for rain boots now!
while i was doing my morning reading
and reflection writing,
i came across a quote
that rang true to me in a funny way.
it was from a writer quoting Lev Vygotsky
(how cool would it be to be named Lev?)
a Russian psychologist,
who talked about how we interact with people.
one of his beliefs was that
we become ourselves through others.
there's a certain individual awareness
that comes from interacting with others.
we actually learn more about ourselves,
through being with other people.
isn't that a wonderful thought?
i think it brings some togetherness
to the world
when sometimes we have to squint to otherwise see it.
so there's some social theory
for your tuesday afternoon!
