Anarchist. Queer. Radical Unschooler. Tea enthusiast.
Married. Queer. Radical Unschooling Mum. Domestic Goddess. Traditional Midwife. Anarchist (and not one of those selfish Ayn Rand-ian ones either). Synesthete. Kitchen & Water Witch. Rootworker. D.I.Y. Mathematician. Librarian. Tea Enthusiast. Aspiring Accordionist. Jsem Romský aktivista! Jsem porodní asistentka.  I re/post things that catch my eye and I post the randomness in my head honestly with little censoring or borders and it's rarely linear. I'm rather manic in my consumption of media and that's reflected quite well in my public output. Most of my output is completely public.  Topics from me that might end up in your stream could be and are not limited to the following: unschooling, comics/graphic novels, education, what I'm doing, midwifery, homebirth, geekiness, technobabble, synesthesia, anarchism, lots of Rumi, where I'm at, parenting, vegetarianism/veganism, urban homesteading, intentional communities, nerdtasticness, Pittsburgh, LGBTQ issues, library science, media consumption, mathematics, Buddhist thought, quotations (famous or otherwise), what I'm cooking/eating, how-to videos/articles, the plight of the Roma (Gypsy) people, what I'm reading, ridiculous videos my son makes me watch and links to music projects from +thee midnight refuge
