“If we learn to open our hearts, anyone, including the people who drive us crazy, can be our teacher.”
― Pema Chödrön
It has been a long time since my last post. This is due partly to what life sent us over the past months and my pondering whether to continue the blog. One of the main reason for debating the survival of the blog was the incredible amount of work spam creates, fake users, and abuse of every kind which unfortunately in now common place in cyberspace but impedes the progress and leaves a sour taste in your mouth on some days. The advent of internet has opened so many doors but the problem of security, unscrupulous people have unfortunately also made it much less user friendly than it should be. For our schooling, it has opened a world of possibilities, connection with other like-minded people but the anonymity has facilitated the work of predators and we are forced to take precautions which closes many of those doors. Part of this year’s schooling adventure has been to connect with families around the world, sharing our gifts and learning from them. It is progressing slowly but surely and we are making meaningful connections we hope will last a lifetime.
I have not reached a concrete solution or decision yet but after a year break, I decided to find the answer in blogging again. So as spring arrives early in the Northeast, I open a new chapter in the blog and in our lives as I return to school and continue our wonderful adventure into homeschooling.
