Leaving Home, Wearing Masks

Leaving Home, Wearing Masks

  My family and I recently left Canada under stressful circumstances. We're now living in the tropics for the time being: worldschooling, learning Spanish, writing, loving, connecting with other people and families, and working to support freedom of thought, speech, and bodily integrity as much as possible.    I never could have possibly guessed—as recently as eight months ago—that I would end up experiencing threats of violence and even death, for speaking what I believe to be true--let alone that the majority of human beings on earth would be compelled to cover their faces when moving through the streets.    But in retrospect, the...

No, Fed is Not Best, But You’re Just Fine

No, Fed is Not Best, But You’re Just Fine

Looking down at my two-month old baby as he nurses hungrily, and then, hours later, collapses on my breast in a stupor, all I feel is gratitude. I am so lucky.  As a culture, I believe we drastically misunderstand the importance of the breastfeeding relationship as simply a delivery system for what is arguably the nutritional "best". Instead, it’s my profound conviction that the actual food infants receive from their mothers is only a small part of a countless number of aggregate needs that breastfeeding fulfils, including physical warmth, love, care, socialization, relationship, the basis for a healthy sexuality, the...
