Taking a step back …

I recall – in the late 1980s – reflecting on the wisdom displayed in the concepts illustrated below (despite the bemusing “causal/casual” typo 😂).

It demonstrates the value of “peeling back the onion”. The value asking “why”? The value of questioning to the void.

It also flags a warning.

It flags the need to think differently.

… and to do differently

All disasters should stimulate us to step back. To explore interventions which are truly “comprehensive and integrated” – how we can peel back the onion to explore gaps and opportunities. Sometimes to change the whole way we define our needs.
