Stirring in Some Light Magic: #LoIsInDaBl Day 26

Why, hello there, and welcome to Love Is In Da Blog, Day 26. 

I wasn’t here yesterday. Instead, I had a lunch date with my Accomplice, and, after, I was busy with a piece from a member of my critique group, and with untangling a difficult scene for the piece I’m revising for the group this week. The house was quiet, as our daughter was visiting a friend, and our son was mostly occupied in his room.

It’s not the first post I’ve missed this month. I came in late, and I’m undecided, right now, about whether I’ll revisit the topics I’ve missed along the way. While I’m not fond of leaving things unfinished, I’m also heading into spring, which is a series of creative endeavors for me, personally, and also the time of year when we tend to gear up for getting out and about. We’ve got plans already for the beginning of March and the end of April, and, between, my daughter’s likely to have sleepovers. There will doubtless be other things added in as we go along. So, either I will, or I won’t, or I’ll get to some, and not to others.

But now, it’s Friday again.

Here’s what Bee wrote at the beginning of the month:

Fridays will all be about blog love. Celebrate a blog, or just a post, that you love. That can be one of yours or someone else’s. It can be a blog about love or just a blog you love. As long as you give it some credit and share it with us it will be fine! This is also a great possibility to use the WordPress reblog button.

Give them to me 😉

For the last (but only my third) Blog Love Friday, I’ve got a blog filled with magical simplicity. It’s the inspiration of unschooling pioneer and mother Sandra Dodd, whose writings on the nuts and bolts of partnering with children, and her personal advice during a visit to our home in 2010 are largely responsible for the dramatic and amazing shift in the life of my family.

As I sit here in my peaceful home, visiting and watching TV with my eleven year old daughter, while my teen son sleeps and my husband watches a movie in the other room, I know that I owe Sandra a huge debt of gratitude, not only for her own words, but for her careful curation and sharing of others’ words of wisdom as well.

Just Add Light And Stir  is a (nearly) daily tiny treasure – a short suggestion or musing about unschooling and approaching children peacefully, with an associated image that adds dimension to the post.

Even better, you can get Just Add Light and Stir delivered directly to your inbox, if you’d like!

Living happily and peacefully with these two growing-up kids is the light stirred into my life!

I am myself. I own my life, and live with three other people who own theirs. My intention is to do only those things that bring me joy, and to give myself wholly to those things I do. Writing has been my passion throughout my life, and this will become the home for my writing life...because it brings me great joy!
