The only problem with assigning my students the task of writing a blog is that I feel compelled to do the same. I think that I need to have the same experience of facing the blank page, learning the technological idiosyncrasies, and organizing something thoughtful and coherent onto this white space.

This blank page, a white space of infinite possibilities  presents a challenge.

The blank page of this blog will be my white space to chronicle my explorations in a White room.

“Speech is civilization itself. The word, even the most contradictory word, preserves contact – it is silence which isolates.”

Thomas Mann
