A New Path

You cannot take itself
From any Human soul-
That indestructible estate
Enable him to dwell-
Impregnable as Light
That every man behold
But take away as difficult
As undiscovered Gold-

~Emily Dickinson

Somehow, I found the courage to jump off a cliff. It wasn't like me at all... I don't like change, I don't like to take risks... but here I am, homeschooling my two children, Elena and Mac.

Our first weeks have been spent rediscovering their interests and passions. As the days passed, my anxiety has turned to relief; my joyful, curious kids have reappeared. Mac has suddenly found that he likes to draw, and is producing a detailed imaginary world.

Elena was inspired to learn and write about Elizabeth Blackwell... I am amazed by their ideas and questions, and I'm excited to find out what they will come up with next!
