Spring is a time for new beginnings for US as well as the earth , and for me it means to try something NEW, perhaps step out of my comfort zone and take a risk.
"EXPAND OUR WORLD" has been my mantra for awhile now and is often discussed with my own unschooled children.
You don't have to love a topic to know and learn about it. It's all about taking in knowledge here and there to find out what you do LOVE. The term, glorious generalist, comes to mind.
I love to READ, and can never have enough books, but sometimes reading takes a back burner as I partake in the filled to the brim life I lead.
I have to *make time* for things that are important to me, for new adventures to expand my world. When I make time to do what I want to do, I feel more in Harmony. And when I am in harmony, my children are in harmony.
So . . . I am taking part in TWO Book Challenges.
Carl from Stainless Steel Droppings has announced his 4th annual
Quest the Third
~ Read 5 non-fiction books during the months of May - September, 2010
~ Read at least one non-fiction book that is different from your other choices
Check out both challenges
maybe YOU can expand your world too!
"From every book invisible threads reach out to other books; and as the mind comes to use and control those threads the whole panorama of the world's life, past and present, becomes constantly more varied and interesting, while at the same time the mind's own powers of reflection and judgment are exercised and strengthened."
