1 of 8 – Snippetts of Eros – What’s Erotic about Learning?

Dear Earthlings:
The year of wonders is what 2012 is supposed to be.  Yours truly offers snippets of her favorite books.  All on yesterday’s forbidden themes.  Let’s see if their mysteries are revealed.
Eros is a story that staved the loneliness of her first years in the Caribbean, when she was missing her former Matrias,  California and Italy.
Is learning erotic?  That’s one of the main themes.  Students and teachers have fallen in love with each other since time immemorial.  Yet the very question has become a taboo.  Why?  Love produces desire to know.  Knowledge produces desire to love.  Isn’t that a win-win?  A world where knowledge is loved is a world that knows love and reveres it.
Here are yours truly’s reflections back in 2007.  Eros: A Journey of Multiple Loves, has the full story.
Eros Cover“As a teacher and student of many years, I know that, no matter what sexual-harassment policies say, learning is erotic since it activates the pleasure of discovery by putting brain cells in motion, and stimulates the body-mind by opening up vistas and possibilities to the imagination.  The erotic energy emanating from this process is what keeps people in schools–it is what keeps us engaged in the learning process, be it as students and teachers. . . .  I was not fully aware of this when  . . . I was going to become my student’s teacher of language as well as love” (4).
The narrative continues as Stephane and Gaia fall in love.  Oh blessed be!

Dear Earthlings:

Education is the heart of democracy.  And that includes education to love.  It comes in many forms.  Including learning about Eros and journeys of multiple loves.

Eros: A Journey of Multiple Loves was a Lambda Finalist in 2007.  It is now being considered for translation in to Spanish by a press in Madrid.  Access to this memoir would be a great gift to Spanish speakers across the globe.  If you agree, leave a comment and we will let the publisher know.  Gracias! 
Did you enjoy the post?  Let us know!  Yours truly appreciates your attention.  The comments box is open.

Come back!  And stay tuned for more wonders.


Namaste,
