Honoring David’s Legacy

My Interest in David’s Inquiries

June 8, 2014 Judith Hi all, Thank you for asking about my project. I ‘met’ David through an email and subsequent conversations. I became curious about how he constructs his Inquiries, which are so distinctive and surprising, plus being ‘precise’, concise, and entice toward possibilities. (Enough ‘-ises’ to begin my USA summer!) I began taking a closer look at his questions/replies, sort of unpacking the pieces he puts into his sentences. This fascinates [...]

Inquiry infusions from David & Michael

Judy:August 7, 2014 Dear Sarah, I hear you about getting disconnected from energy and creativity in work. I’m having a rough time staying connected to my study–I got a bit lost about what I wanted to do…and whether I can do it… The summer heat and continual rains here don’t help me stay focused, especially when I feel storms 3 days before it rains one drop. I’d rather hike some mountains and pick huckleberries— well, [...]
