Thank you for stopping by this website, and welcome. This site provides access to the work that I have been doing for the past forty years. That work encompasses self-directed learning, unschooling, and life learning; conscious, non-coercive parenting; social change; environmental stewardship; and entrepreneurship/home-based/micro business. Aside from those being my passions – and therefore what I like to write about – I understand that everything we do in our everyday lives connects us with the web of life on Earth. Therefore, the physical, mental, economic, and social health of our families and of our environment is a reflection of the choices we make.
My writing involves helping people understand the range of choices available and encouraging them to challenge the assumptions inherent in those choices so that they make the right ones for themselves, their families, and the Earth. I believe that we have reached the stage where we need to rethink how we live in our families and our communities, and on our planet. And, in my opinion, that means embracing smaller-scale, local ways of doing things, and becoming more self-reliant in the way that we think, educate ourselves, and live.
For an ever-growing archive of my writing, please click on the “writing” link at the top of this page.
So welcome. I hope you will enjoy and be inspired, or at least informed, by the selection of the work I’ve presented on this website.
