Turning the Standard CV on Its Head to Start #DigiWriMo

The challenge, as a kick start to Digital Writing Month, is to write an unCV that in some way reflects an important concept associated with identity – something that is not represented in a standard CV.

This one is for @dogtrax with an open invitation to one and all to borrow and blend, dig in and add on, tour with and spin-out. An invitation to see what happens when we ground our CVs in our own locale of identity and the vernacular of our geography.

My geographic CV

Grounded, grounding,

I live in degrees

of Fives and Threes

53.5333° N 113.5000° W

my solar system position

is family-reviewed

my life,

an open book

a published


Keeping time to the beat

Of my breath

and my near

and dear ones.

About Maureen Crawford

I work as a researcher and educational consultant. My undergraduate degree is in industrial design so design thinking has long been part of my process - emergent connectivist learning resonates strongly with me.

    Maureen, love how you’ve opened digiwrimo with a poem! Really like your clever integration of the physical geography with the emotional. And then all the remixes that have already spun off from it. I’d better get remixing!

  3. Thx Kevin and Tanya – Kevin I loved your blocks of time – Like a theatre director blocking out the staging of ones life!
    Tanya – I am looking forward to seeing where you take this.

  4. Love seeing the connections and how folks are connecting the dots. From Kevin to you to Tania to … I echo Tanya!

    Love this, Maureen! So evocative and really gets me thinking about what it means to know yourself through spaces external & internal. And then Kevin’s poem — just wonderful; I love the progression of it! My head is buzzing with possibility — thank you!

  6. Lovely, so perfectly you.
    Thanks for encouraging me to get writing for DigiWriMo already: http://rhondajessen.com/?p=7167.
