Sandi Schwartz interviewed me September 30, 2009. Here's the description she put on her website. I didn't write this. It's a little embarrassing, but kinda sweet, and in the three weeks around that interview I did send copies of The Big Book of Unschooling all over the U.S. and Canada, to Scotland, England, Wales, Denmark, The Netherlands, Switzerland, South Africa, New Zealand, Australia and India."
Note: I did tell her I didn't believe in "Law of Attraction," and she said she wouldn't bring that up, but the intro to the recording says something about that. Don't be spooked. :-)
The quote she brought up was by Nora Cannon:
"The thing that works with unschooling is to follow delight - and scatter it like a flower girl in front of the bride - not every petal will be crushed to release fragrance - but enough will. ...of course to follow delight, you have to admit to yourself that you feel delight." —Nora CannonShe found it on the Strewing page here: SandraDodd.com/strewing
I said "lame" a dozen times or more. Sorry. It was the word of the day. Lame.
A couple of things I liked from this interview that I said:
(Of unit studies, or any creative plan):Those things, in the hands of someone creative and enthusiastic, can be really vibrant and cool.
