Am I an insider or an outsider? .
I may speak the local language or even share the same mother tongue, and be quite familiar with the context having had visited the same area in a different capacity a while ago. However, I do come from a very different background (i.e., having grown up in a big urban city, having had education from private English-speaking institutions, and having had access to training in various extra-curricular activities) which reflects in the way I may dress, speak the same language as well as other languages, and the way I may carry myself around. I cannot assume that having the same skin tone, or the shared mother tongue, or even shared citizenship status would make me an insider within every community I work with in this context.
Navigating this position is extremely important for guiding ethical practices in community-based research and development work. As such, each of us hold unique cultural beliefs, values and practices that are rooted within our family traditions and childhood experiences, and will be challenged when working outside our comfort spaces.
Saw this lovely rustic beaut. on my errand travels today. Wish the lighting were better, so you can see the full details, but guess the time of day played a big part in that. Anyhow, I could just envision several barnyard parties here, all decked out in decor and stringed lighting. Thinking, I can't wait to make that dream a reality. That's if I can get the hubby fully on board. No worries though, I'm slowly easing that contemporary flair of his a little to the left of the midway compromise ruler. A tiny move and a lot of gentle persuasion might just do the trick😏👌. Only time will tell though😊. #Barns , #barnyardparties , #farmdecor , #rusticspaces , #barnlove , #southerngirlatheart , #Antiquatedelegance , #atimegonebutnotforgotten , #traditionalstyle , #land , love, and #acres .
An angle of my house i haven’t shared before. I wanted to wait until we painted. Until i found the perfect ottoman to go in the middle. Until the board and batten was done until.... but a house is never completed is it? I will always find something “more” and with my #januaryspendingfreezechallenge i decided to be happy with what i have, so here’s our family room. All incomplete of it, but we love it.
This basement bar belongs to one of my client’s. I love the warmth of the material finishes we selected to make this a unique and stylish space suited for a Hunter and his friends. Interior Design by Sarah Bernardy Design, LLC photographer Steve Voegeli #mndesigner#rusticspaces#katelotile
