How to Work From Home

Learning all about this the hard way!

First, it must be understood that we don’t know what we’re doing. Nothing wonderful can come from this unless this is made perfectly clear.

Are you working from home? We are. Or we’re trying to.

Because of the Covid Pandemic, we can’t film together in studio. So we’re finding things to work on that we can do solo, like our website and our new podcast Socratica Reads.

We’re also doing our best to keep our spirits up by watching movies, reading books, playing games, and doing a little creative cooking.

Liliana and I made this video via video chat so you could get an idea of how we’re handling this very strange time.

Stay well, Socratica Friends!

Ray Bradbury Centennial

My hero Ray Bradbury turns 100 today.

Yes, I know, all too well, that he is no longer with us. And yet, he most certainly is.

At a very early age, I was lucky enough to discover Ray Bradbury’s brilliant, lyrical, emotional, intuitive writing. His stories revealed the world to me, as well as my place in it.

I was lucky enough to meet Ray Bradbury on a number of occasions. But today I’d like to share the day I first discovered him, when I was nine years old. I read his short story called All Summer in a Day.*

My life was forever changed.

I’m telling this story in the inaugural episode of our new podcast: Socratica Reads.

This is not your typical book review podcast. There are plenty of those out there already! Socratica Reads is a personal journey. It’s an exploration of the profound effects that the right book at the right time can have on a person.

or you can subscribe through your favourite podcast player (Spotify, Google Podcasts, etc.).

This will not be the one and only episode that will feature Ray Bradbury, because of course many of his works helped shape us into the creators we are today. Stay tuned for more Bradbury and other creators whose works we have found influential.
