Deschooling the Mind

Not from this last full moon, but still beautifully out of focus Last year, I homeschooled my Piscean daughter. It was an interesting experience brought about by a lot of school stress.

Finding My Ancestral Heritage

Love the tracks that some insect family burrowed into this fallen tree As part of my journey to discovering my authentic self, I wanted to know what my ancestral heritage is.

And while the first half of 2018 was more of that same stress that 2016 and 2017 brought to me, the secondContinue reading “The Promise of a New Year”
