Welcome to my blog. Here is space where I delve into items that matter to me - especially around notions of education, intercultural competencies and 'global-mindedness'. Often I will chat about these items based on research, but at other times, I will also use the vehicle of Japanese martial arts to share ideas and insights. Two-roads crossing. As 'Uncle' Walt Whitman stated 'if I contradict myself, I contradict myself for I am immense'. Anyway, let's see how this blogging lark goes!
