Zann Carter

Zann Carter wrote in the 1990s, as Suzanne Carter, on the AOL forum. Occasionally she contributes a gem, still, and I wanted to gather some things and link some others. Zann and her family were some of the first unschoolers I ever met beyond my own town. We drove from New Mexico to Indiana for a small private gathering of families in 1995*—Keith, our three young children, and I.

That same year she wrote this:

Freeing Butterflies / A Grandmother's Journey to Homeschooling Acceptance by Zann Carter ([email protected]), 1996

In 2018 I added "Zen Dishwashing," a 1990 poem she had written about washing the dishes, to my page about dishes. She had posted on my facebook page when I shared the "found art" of the arrangement of some dirty dishes in my sink. It's in the lower right, here: Dishes— thinking about them, owning, using, washing, incorporating them into peaceful living.

That above, I lifted from Indiana Humanities' site.

* For a while, this page said 1996, but Holly was four, and born in November 1991, so I was wrong. It must have been 1995.
