I'm Leslie. A fun-loving, down to earth, easy-going woman. I am an educator by training, a teacher by gifting and life-learner by design. I am a creative; an artist in my own right. I am a wife and mother. I am a reader and writer. I enjoy entirely too many hobbies and hoard books by the dozens. I am a healer; using energy work and massage to assist in bringing clients back to balance. I am also a community organizer and builder. I spent 10 years in the formal education system before coming home to start my family. I've been loving my children at home since their beginnings. Although there are a good many days I want to pull my hair out, I am thankful to be able to be with them during these precious years. They're going by so fast.
I have learned a lot about life through cultivating relationships, parenting, instructing both children and adults, community building and identifying and implementing sustainable practices. I share my findings, insights and experiences here on this blog. When I started it, years ago, I was 'all-in'. Using it mainly as a place to share highlights and pictures with family and close friends. I then took a long break from the blogosphere as life required my full attention. It still does, actually, but I'm finding that I am interested again in blogging--for different reasons, slightly. (smile) As I begin to write my books and curricula, a publisher friend strongly suggested that I "get back to blogging" as a way to connect with the public and hone my writing skills. I also co-lead and facilitate a local homeschooling community and think that it will be helpful to share resources here--where they can be found (and found again) at everyone's convenience.
So, here I am. Ready to begin again. I hope to be regular and have purposely linked up with some other faithful bloggers/blogs joining in on their weekly rituals to make sure I am consistent.
