What if Instead of Calling People Out, We Called Them In?

nytimes.com

Calling out assumes the worst. Calling in involves conversation, compassion and context. It doesn’t mean a person should ignore harm, slight or damage, but nor should she, he or they exaggerate it.

"Now is the winter of our discontent

Made glorious summer by this sun of York;

And all the clouds that lour'd upon our house

In the deep bosom of the ocean buried."

Love this landscape in the eastern Wairarapa hills. Fabulous erosion control and use of sub-clover for natural nitrogen fixing. #naturebasedagriculture #sheepandbeefnz #aotearoanz

Landscape and Memory" by Simon Schama made a huge impression on me when it first came out in 1995. It still resonates today. A masterwork of history and sociology. #mbnov

So far, I am really, really enjoying macOS Big Sur. Installation went well, and my 2017 iMac is noticeably faster than it was before the upgrade. And the look and feel of the whole OS is much improved.

It begins…

I guess I’ll give downloading and installing macOS Big Sur a go… or should I wait a few days? Hmm 🤔 #mbnov

First pohutukawa flowers are out… summer must be coming…
