That Pivotal Moment

Friday, August 2nd, 2013

There is a pivotal moment as a researcher studies the article search results in front of him/her.  Some articles are “just what I was looking for,” but then you see one…and it stands out at you in a completely metacognitively 3-dimensional way:  the ONE that will change your perspective.  The research hesitates:  knowing that this is the game-changer.  It is almost a scary moment, but it is also exciting.  S/he clicks on the *.pdf, and everything shifts.  What a privilege it is.
