Weekend Ed. Quote ~ May 24-25

It is a unique situation to begin a weekend across the International Dateline. I am posting on Friday here in Singapore, yet it is still Thursday in the U.S. My thoughts continue to center on stories, storytelling, and digital storytelling. I’m looking forward to my visit with Singapore’s Digital Storytelling coach, Angeline Koh. Read my post about our conversation tomorrow at this link.

 

Here is your weekend Ed. Quote on stories, storytelling, with a peek to the opportunities for digital storytelling.

This week’s Ed. Quote is in honor of my creative daughter, on her birthday!

“Electricity is not only present in a magnificent thunderstorm
and dazzling lightning, but also in a lamp; so also, creativity
exists not only where it creates great historical works,
but also everywhere human imagination combines, changes,
and creates anything new.”
~Lev Vygotsky, 1930/1967, cited in Smolucha, 1992, p. 54

“Loneliness kills. It’s as powerful as smoking or alcoholism,” Robert Waldinger, Director on the Harvard Study of Adult Development, one of the world’s longest studies of adult life. “It’s not just the number of friends you have, and it’s not whether or not you’re in a committed relationship,” says Waldinger, “It’s the quality of your close relationships that matters.”

“Good relationships don’t just protect our bodies; they protect our brains…And those good relationships, they don’t have to be smooth all the time. Some of our octogenarian couples could bicker with each other day in and day out, but as long as they felt that they could really count on the other when the going got tough, those arguments didn’t take a toll on their memories,” Robert Waldinger, Director on the Harvard Study of Adult Development, one of the world’s longest studies of adult life.
