Today we returned to Dartington Hall for a longer sampling of the myriad topics on offer from Ways With Words. From holocaust miracle babies to disruptive political leaders, our day was wonderfully varied.
I found the differing methods used to convey ideas almost as fascinating as the talks themselves. Alice Roberts' "formal", university-style lecture – an effective Deep Homology 101 – contrasted immensely with the chaotically informal, poetry infused discussion with Ben Okri that concluded our day.
Yet each utterly fascinated, imbuing a desire for more: more time to read, more time to learn, more time to listen. More time in general, really.
