What got me thinking about the subject was Charlotte's generous sharing of her thoughts and feelings on her blog as she is researching her current project. So many times I have felt that no one could have been through my life struggles, Then I hear or read about someone else' life, and reminded once again that it is not true. I am just another woman who lived on this earth and experienced a certain amount of joy and sadness just like everyone else. I believe research reveals, believe it or not, that most things have happened before.
In college I did not do very well in Research Writing. I took too many classes at once and the instructor was not very helpful. She used much fear in her teaching methods. What her motivation was I will probably never know. Never the less, I now realize, after the fact, that it is important to have those researching skills because it gives one the ability to influence thought and belief within a culture. Grades are important, but being able to able to something is more important to me. So everyone, I am going to be working on my researching skills. Back to breasts.
For those of you who read Substitute Me by Tharps, I have noticed a breast motif? going through the novel. I am wondering if a research paper could be written examining something to do with the provision of nurturing through the breast by black females to white males. I'm going to write something for practice because I like it and because I want to and because I can. There are so many subjects in Jones', and Southgates's books that can be researched too. Read their books and you will probably see many more ideas for study and inquiry than I do. 9-16-10
