There is no word in English to describe the special closeness that sometimes binds a man and a woman who are never lovers, but more than friends. Roger was my husband’s best friend, but I loved him too. Had we met decades earlier, I would have jumped on the back of his Harley and ridden off with him. As it was, what grew between us was something much subtler. But because there is no word for it, it stayed mysterious in my mind, to be brought to light only in the course of my becoming Roger’s memoirist.
This session will be held in Perry Hall at UW-Fox Valley.. See the campus map for location. The closest exit to the Communication Arts Center is Exit 13S.
This presentation will take place in the Somerset Room in the Warch Campus Center.
Art meets science in this stunning look at our changing planet.
James Balog has been a leader in photographing, understanding and interpreting the natural environment for three decades. Extensively published in National Geographic and other international media, James and the Extreme Ice Survey team are the subjects of the award-winning feature documentary, “Chasing Ice,” which premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.
Braving treacherous conditions—crevasses, rockslides, avalanches, temperatures down to -40 F., and frigid river crossings—James takes us on an inspiring quest to document spectacular arctic and alpine glaciers. He and his Extreme Ice Survey team bring back to civilization extraordinary documentation of how quickly the ice is vanishing.
These fast-changing glacial landscapes are the canary in the coalmine, the most tangible, visible evidence of climate change anywhere in the world today. Building on his early career training as an earth scientist and mountaineer, James is uniquely qualified to make an informative presentation mixing astounding scientific facts with otherworldly beauty.
This is a passionate story of devotion, commitment and creativity. But it goes even further: it alters our perception of what it means to be human at this historic moment of geologic time.
In the workshop we will look at Compassion in our community utilizing the tools and techniques created by the Center for Civic Reflection and its Director Adam Davis.
The practice of civic reflection brings a group of people with common work together to talk about the motives, principles and purposes of their civic engagement. Gathering in a hospitable place, they share a meal followed by a facilitated discussion. Carefully selected, short but thought-provoking readings anchor each discussion. Facilitators ask questions rather than make pronouncements. They listen and help to clarify issues and thinking rather than deliver long speeches.
