Every picture tells a story

D-day for dissertation – now done and dusted – and looking far better for being wordled. Are they words that ring true? Already I am wishing I told it straighter and more to the point. Or are they generative words?

Monument in honour of Paulo Freire, Esplanada dos Ministérios, Brazil

I came across this monument of Paulo Freire – with the writing on the wall. For Freire words were generative. “To speak a true word is to transform the world”, whereas, if a word is deprived of its dimension of action … the word is changed into idle chatter, into verbalism, into an alienated and alienating ‘blah'”. (Freire, 2000, Pedagogy of the Oppressed, p.87)
