"Unlike most human relationships, my library is always buying me something new, forgiving me when I atone, and consistently planning unexpected ways to lure me." 
Join me in the obsession. It's free and oh so addicting.

Yes and my library sells great books, for 50 cents, and 3 for a buck on Wednesday!

Anti-nuke activist finds that she has a connection to the atomic bomb. 
I'm sure my ten-year-old self would be disappointed with me now. I haven’t devoted myself to freeing the world of nuclear waste and nuclear weapons, nor to advancing peace. But it’s an issue that has resounded in my life.

Cleveland area peeps. I'm eager to meet and talk with any of you who can make it this evening! 

Program with the author of Free Range Learning: How Homeschooling Changes Everything at the Parma-Snow branch of Cuyahoga County Library, Wednesday April 23rd at 7 pm. The topic is dispelling common homeschooling fallacies like I can't afford to homeschool, homeschooled kids have to follow grade level standards, and homeschooling might wreck my child's chances for later success. Lots of facts to disprove those fallacies!

I agree! Sadly, our historical Carnegie Library was closed in favor of a huge, modern, antiseptic building. The building became a used book store for a long time in its second life, but sits abandoned now. All libraries are worthy, but I miss the venerable building of my youth.

+Curt Brown I certainly don't - I was only making a numbers comparison to show. I make good money there is no doubt about that but to take that amount from me is simply overkill. I am against the income tax it is true but I could certainly stomach a far less invasive one than this.

Introduction

Relentless optimist, book addict, awe junkie.  

I'm the author of Free Range Learning, a handbook of natural learning, and a collection of poetry titled TendingMy upcoming book is titled Subversive Cooking. I write and serve as editor for a number of periodicals, print and online.  

My background includes teaching non-violence workshops, writing poetry with nursing home residents, facilitating support groups, and developing community enrichment workshops. 

These days I mostly edit books, write, and do other hermit-y things. My poetry has won several minor awards, the most notable a third grade prize from Miss Barker (which included a chocolate bar.) 

I live on a small farm with my family where we raise bees, cows, chickens, produce, and the occasional hair-brained scheme.
