Dearest Hobbits, this is not a serious reply as I live on my own 30 acres near Bellingen in NSW Australia with no plans to relocate and I just turned 55, and therefore I do not fit the age range for you. Never the less I love your son's smile, it reminds me of my daughters (just turned eight) happy smile I would like to say hello and allow for any friendships that may flow. I wanted to let you know how wonderful you sound and hope you connect with someone compatible. I wanted to share with you my joy of parenting with playfulness and invite you to look at a facebook page called "giggle parenting". Wish that I could meet you in different circumstances to share some of my hand pressed red sauerkraut. I love biodynamics and composting and feel sure that we could chat about that for hours while pottering, planting, chop and dropping or having a fresh mint cuppa. When I do pluck up the courage I will post my own post because actually I am looking for help with creating a food forest and regenerating this land for which I'm now custodian. Life is busy as I try to care for with compassionate patience my separated husband who carries the pain and mental patterns of PTSD (childhood trauma)
All the while still homeschooling my daughter. Life challenges us and we grow. I am absolutely passionate about listening with awareness to peoples emotional expressions and communications of needs. I love the work of Marshall Rosenberg's NVC compassionate communication, Patty Wipfler's book "Listen" and Dan Segal's mindsight.
Naturally I'm into yoga. and enjoyed a natural birth for my daughter. It is more important to me than ever to help and encourage the healing of all of our peoples that come into our lives and build healthy communities.
