I just moved to a new town and started a new job. I don’t really know anyone yet so I’ve had a lot of time to myself just for thinking. Lately I’ve been watching House of Cards which has me thinking about power dynamics among people.
We just spent part of the morning out at one of our teachers properties working with his horses. He wrote his dissertation on power structures within horse herds and how it relates to the classroom. It’s an interesting task, trying to help students develop into individuals who aren’t interested in using power for only their own betterment, as Kevin Spacey ‘ s character in House of Cards is, but to show them that it’s important to empower others as well.
That’s all I’ve got. Short post. Back to work!
