DeBono’s Thinking Course and a New Necklace

Very few people are good listeners. A good listener listens slowly to what is being said. He does not jump ahead nor does he rush to judge or does he sit there formulating his own reply. He focuses directly on what is being said. He listens to more than is being said. He extracts the maximum information from what he hears by looking between the words used and wondering why something has been expressed in a particular way. It is active listening because the listener’s imagination is full of “could be” and “may be” elaborations.

An Excerpt from DeBono’s Thinking Course.

Although this excerpt is taken from a text/philosophy style book, it sounds like a poem. I suppose it is a found poem.


Ceiling Tile Casting Necklace

Red Bronze, Copper and Sterling Silver Necklace.

I alloyed Copper and Tin together to make the irregular shaped ceiling tile cast parts. Then I added handmade sterling silver, and copper jump rings making these cast pieces into pendants that become part of the necklace. The chain is entirely hand fabricated from sterling silver and copper wire.

Ceiling Tile Casting was deveoped at Northern Michigan University in Marquette, Michigan. If you are interested in the process, please contact me.

  1. Sweet! The necklace has an strong Upper Peninsula elemental feel to it. I am always interested in poetry with a sense of place–this necklace is definitely jewelry with a sense of place. I look forward to one day seeing the piece in person. i want to feel the weight of it and marvel some more.
