Slowly being

"Being there for and with the family" seems so simple and yet many parents miss out on it without even leaving the house.  photo playing_in_the_sand.jpg Maybe it's because of English. Maybe we think we're "being there with our family" just because we can hear them in the other room. There is a special kind of "being" and a thoughtful kind of "with" that are necessary for unschooling and mindful parenting to work.

  1. No maybe about it, It's English ...
    In Greek there are seven words for love. In Spanish forty or more...

    "It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child."

    Pablo Picasso

    Not surprising he was Spanish ... Just sayin'

  2. Spanish has two separate verbs for "to be." English doesn't, so we can confuse ourselves philosophically. :-)

    Overall, English has many more words. There are some things we can say with subtlety that Spanish doesn't have the nuances for.
