Have to read up on grounded theory but the symposium I just went to at least gave me some starting points. As a declaration of identity the original is quite rich in who we are and the worlds we inhabit. As I struggle with the idea of where I “belong” that seems a useful path too.
Messiness and chaos is fine at the ground level but shouldn’t we strive for some sense making. Anyone can make a mess and that’s fun, but sense matters too. Even if we are only responding to our own group there’s a dynamic of communication to be explored in how disparate groups of individuals come together.
I agree with Rebecca that we develop a public persona–explain ourselves at least so we ourselves know we are real.
