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......

Beautiful loveliness

Or some such syrupy sweetness.

Somebody mentioned the Kahlil Gibran chapter "on children" from his book "The Prophet" on a list today. I had no idea that it had been turned into a song. Go listen to Sweet Honey on the Rock sing it Acapella style. If that doesn't bring tears to your eyes, I don't know that there's any hope for you.;)

I have all these lovelyish connections to Kahlil Gibran's work though. I feel a deep sense of connectedness to my mother through his work. One of the first times I felt we indeed had similar spirits was finding that book in the basement and realizing it was one of her treasures. She gave it to me a couple years before she died. It is one of my most cherished possessions now.

I mentioned a new friend from the RE conference in an earlier post. His Grandmother actually knew Gibran and housed him as he worked on "The Prophet". That was a pretty cool connection. Three degrees from brilliance right?

Enjoy the song....the ring of truth is so inviting.
