The Finals Paper to complete MY-NUAL

Thanks for your giving enough time to my website.

You have chosen to sit The Finals Paper; this is a ‘test’ to assess your learning from all the small, safe experiments on offer.

It’s intended to be a fun way to consider what you have done.

This idea arose when one person referred to our sessions as ‘lessons’. Initially, I was put out a little, but I went on to realise there were elements of ‘education’ involved; hence:

The Learning Curve: taking a scenic route to change – Find Your Nudge (

…. so here’s the Finals Paper

The ‘set text’ for this examination is John Roedel’s story poem’. My brain and heart divorced a decade ago

As I do not have permission to reproduce the entire poem here, please read his story poem on the internet at, say, at the Maggie Oliver Foundation.

In this Finals Paper – there is only one question and you set it. You do this by reading the story poem and you will find your question there.

Write down your answer to your own question: you can use the form below, if that helps.

When completing this Finals Paper, consider what, for you,  is the best single question emerging from the set text? What questions ‘talks’ most to you?
