I recently came across an index card written some time back, featuring a quote (p. 64) from Walking Home: The Life and Lessons of a City Builder (2011)
I’ve written previously about this book, by Ken Greenberg, which I found of much interest. A previous post, in which I refer to Walking Home (2011), is entitled:
On the index card I had written a note: “You can learn a lot from a single sentence.”
As a second note, I had written: “It’s a form of active learning. You ask: What is this discussion about?”

The wider concept, however, I can tune into readily. The wider context concerns the culture of decision making, as it relates to land-use planning.
