Hi there tout la gang,

We don't have much to say about research in practice at the Café right now

but we are talking policy and practice over here now: Literacy Enquirers.

Recently someone quoted Carl Jung in a conversation about change:

"We give up the good for the better."

Autumn Movement

I cried over beautiful things knowing no beautiful thing lasts.

The field of cornflower yellow is a scarf at the neck of the copper
sunburned woman, the mother of the year, the taker of seeds.

The northwest wind comes and the yellow is torn full of holes,
new beautiful things come in the first spit of snow on the northwest wind,
and the old things go, not one lasts.

Carl Sandburg

Carl Yung's statement helps ease the anxieties of change, that is, when we are making our own change - not the type foisted on us.

Ah yes ... the key word is 'better'.

So often we are asked to give up something we like for something we don't like and that is a different thing altogether.

For me, I just have to remember to make the distinction.
