Tibetan Terrier's Zen Ethics

Tibetan Terrier's Zen Ethics

About is a very leading word to begin with.

About is like sitting on a ledge and wondering whether to jump off, or let yourself slowly slip off, or to move off with such force you may try a pirouette and hopefully land intact on your feet.

I will simply take a breath and jump.

My name is Jeanette Burkett.  I have been in the business/life-study/destiny path of studying how people interact for a while.

As a child I was the odd one out on the playground.  I had much older parents  who, because of their age and life weren’t very involved.  But I did learn to observe.  I played with my imaginary friends mostly and then I found my real life friends and they listened to my stories.  Most importantly they asked me to make up scenarios and guide them in playing out  my stories.  They loved my stories and their parts in them and for those hot sunny days, afternoons in the brilliant golden Midwestern sun.

Now I live in the Pacifc Northwest with KunTu the Zen Tibetan Terrier, Annie the Morgan Horse.  I became involved in the study of digital games, because play was changing and more importantly was it changing us?

How does stories, play and games link?  How do they impact our lives…

Here are my findings.  May they help you along your paths in creating a life you love for you and your loved ones.

Please feel free to contact me with any comments or questions.

  1. Hi Jeanette,

    I wound up on this page via an invite to Linked-In. At first blush, I was overwhelmed. I’m sure I’ll go back later and try to absorb all the things you are saying.

    But, from the beginning, I felt an intensity in your writing.

    I’m a bi-coastal (I live in Florida and California) Risk Management Consultant. I specialize in Workers’ Compensation. I’m interested in data analysis and the stories it can tell us. I’m also becoming very interested in how gaming is going to change society. I think there are great opportunities to use gaming to improve our behaviors. Or, it can take a negative turn as well.

    I’d like to hear more about what you’re interested in.

    • Hello Bill,

      Thank you very much for your commentary. I hope this column helps, I’m been on a hiatus for a year. I will have a new column coming out shortly.

      You’re input has been very inspiring.

  2. OK…I’m late to the game. a comment on: Bill Cobb’s comment: I’m also becoming very interested in how gaming is going to change society. I think there are great opportunities to use gaming to improve our behaviors. Or, it can take a negative turn as well”

    I thought everyone was aware of how people/corporations “Game” the political system of subsidies. Gaming is already going on. Those who are in the game can win; those not in the game will always lose. Computer databases are part of the game which filter us out of a variety of perspectives and give us only what they think in what we might be interested. Depriving us of good communications and understanding. The book Filter Bubble covers this, as does the new book, Who Owns the Future?
