Replying to LO24456 --

Dear Organlearners and Organteachers,

In Hebrew we say LiLMoD for learning and LeLaMeD for teaching - using the
same verb (LLMD), first acted and then en-acted makes the whole difference
- and at the same time shows the similarity.

I followed with interest and care the developpment of this subject "LO:
Learning or Teaching" and happily noticed how this subject brought to the
surface organizational issues like: who should do what, what should be
done, what needs improvement, etc ... all binded in participants personal
interpretations and perspectives.

For those who, at about now, expect me to get to the point: I am not going
to provide any solution and no creative suggestion for the serious
organizational issues that the list covered until now (i'm sure there are
and will be more), just sharing a lesson.

Without a conscious intention, I became involved with this List; I found
myself happy for every new name I didn't see before, and realized how many
silent readers there are out there (how many? Rick?).

[Host's Note: Don't know exactly, but there are 1575 total subscribers and
a couple hundred more who read on the web. ..Rick]

Moreover, my attention to the content of the messages increased - by
natural curiousity, of course, but not less by the simple fact of being
concerned with their outcome - after all I'm a part of this Organization.

I learned - this experience tought me - a little of how it feels to be a
member in an organization. I'll try not to forget it when teaching
theories to my clients.

Wishing peace to all,

Judy Tal
