(Sound file, fifteen minutes)

a couple of links to go with that:
"Try not to learn. Don't try to learn. Those two aren't the same thing but they're close enough for beginners." (from the last paragraph of this 1998 interview: An Interview with Sandra Dodd

Why we unschooled, feedback, open, half empty

"Why we unschooled" (written a few years ago, about a story from 1990 or so)
This is on my blog, but I suppose some of those posts should be included as resources. I won't announce all of them, but you can subscribe there if you're interested in more personal things about me or my family.
http://sandradodd.blogspot.com/2014/06/why-we-unschooled.html

Nice feedback, lefthand column. I don't save all of it (some I print and put in a special box without quoting elsewhere), but these seemed special.
http://sandradodd.com/feedback/

New page on being open to things, people, life:
http://sandradodd.com/open

Older page I thought had been announced, because I had used it on Just Add Light and Stir
http://sandradodd.com/boredom/halfempty
It has a good story, so I'm glad I discovered it hadn't been announced yet! and I added a bit.
