The Novice

Last week I had a blast talking about the joy of being a novice at TedxNewy. Great day full of interesting ideas. In my talk I mentioned among other things a work by Wayne Kaustenbaum, Humiliation and was a bit careless not to mention an article that added to my thoughts about the novice with aspects of humiliation and shame (yes they are all connected). If you'd like to know more about this, I first read an article by Sam Twyford-Moore on the Meanjin blog about the book and then I read this and this and this and this. And a stack more. And now I finally have the book.
