Aloha ‘Apelila. How about some April Lightness?

April is my birth month, and so over the years it has been full of wonder and joy for me.

In recent years it has been made even more special as the momentum of A Love Affair with Books on Joyful Jubilant Learning lightens up a bit, yet still inspires, with so many ideas that have been triggered within our community book talks.

This year, our cup runneth over, and ALAWB continues this week ~ you could call it our book-learning version of March Madness :) However today I have given our book reviewers a break by introducing our April theme on Joyful Jubilant Learning. Would you like a peek too?


We just spoke of writing as a way to think yesterday…

We spoke of leading intentions the day before that…

Challenge yourself. How about writing for our Ho‘ohana Community on Joyful Jubilant Learning? This will be one of the most open topics we have ever had, and you will have a lot of room to experiment, stretch, and grow.

If you would like to reserve a posting
date on our editorial calendar for April, get hold of me via our community mailbox
on what you have in mind, and I’ll clue you in on how you too can get published
here at Joyful Jubilant Learning.
You would be hard-pressed to find a more welcoming community in which you can write to think and collaboratively learn in a very global and savvy community.

A baby step perhaps?

Ken Partain shared this with us yesterday:

I have
found, over the last few years, that writing long-hand, with pen and
paper, is much more effective for me than typing, whether it's an
article, blog post, or a comment like this. It truly does help me think
and organize my thoughts in a way that sounds true to me.

Try it. Look at the photo above. I had called it “Shy” when first posting it on Flickr almost a year ago, but there is a bold character to it as well don’t you think? What does it cause you to think about in connection with April?

Take pen or pencil in hand and write your thoughts down. Would you care to share them? Will you be seeking lightness too, as I will? How would an Alaka‘i leader lead lightly?
