The girls and I needed an easy hike today. We've been burning the candle at both ends lately. Alex and Sage's homeschooling schedule is (too) full this fall, and finding the right balance has been difficult. We're all may take... Read more of this blog post »

“People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it.”
George Bernard Shaw

John Holt
“Leaders are not, as we are often led to think, people who go along with huge crowds following them. Leaders are people who go their own way without caring, or even looking to see, whether anyone is following them. "Leadership qualities" are not the qualities that enable people to attract followers, but those that enable them to do without them. They include, at the very least, courage, endurance, patience, humor, flexibility, resourcefulness, stubbornness, a keen sense of reality, and the ability to keep a cool and clear head, even when things are going badly. True leaders, in short, do not make people into followers, but into other leaders.”
