Grow kids who want to explore themselves and the world, and really understand who they are. Don’t teach them what you already know; teach them how to find out their own truths. They might reach your same conclusions, or different ones – and that is the whole point of how evolution works. Allow them the […]

Today we borrow words from a scientist (in the picture) and from a prophet (quoted below in the article).

This is a drawing, with a sentence, made by one of our kids several years ago. We can’t remember if it was Luca or Joshua, and they are both still asleep as I am writing this; we’ll ask them later who the author was. This drawing recently emerged out of an unsorted document pile that […]

Jyothi and I met, when we were 19, on a holiday camp booked at the last minute. At the time we lived in different countries and the internet was not commercially spread. We met again the year after. We wrote letters for a while, but then lost contact. When we got back in touch Jyothi […]
