Learning in Freedom

Welcome to Learning in Freedom, a blog all about the learning adventures (and mishaps) of the Allen family. My four children are unschooled, following their interests and passions every day and living the lives of their choosing. The purpose of this blog is to share our every day lives (and my not-so-humble opinons) with anyone interested in stopping by. We hope this will give a glimpse of how natural learning unfolds from day to day......

I'm so inspired by several people right now, some I've met, some I wish I could meet....Amy Steinberg I get to see perform tomorrow night. :)
I just started listening to a radio interview with Ami McKay (if you remember, she wrote "The Birth House") and couldn't even finish because some of the things she talked about were so connected to a project I'm working on. It felt like a message from the universe! I'm always in awe when that happens.

We received our ABC books today, an absolute joy to handle and look at! I'm SO inspired by my little corner of the universe called The Imagination Tribe....so thankful for all the creative women that are willing to bare their souls and share their visions with others. The ATC trade was also amazing. I am constantly renewed by surrounding myself with brave and beautiful people.

I pulled out a scrap of paper this week. It has the name of an artist in the Portland area that I met at her booth at Saturday's Market while visiting the NW last summer. Her whimsical and colorful art pulled me like a magnet. Laini Taylor is another inspirational spirit.

An unschooler I met last year at the conference has a musically talented husband, that recently won the John Lennon songwriter award. Please go listen to his music. It's soothing, upbeat and fantastic: Yener Korkut is following his passions and sharing his talent with the world.

I'm inspired by my children, my community, my universe daily. There's just something about people that are following their passions, trusting destiny and letting life flow through them in a very real way. I'm grateful for every one of them, and those that are healing to find their way back to self.:)
