As I expected, between our common interest in writing, history, and education and our undeniable “gift for gab”, Colleen and I shared a wonderful conversation over hot tea and dessert when I visited her earlier this year for her Style Story. Among other things, we discussed her background in poet and literature, how that influenced the style of education she offered her children, what she has been growing in her garden lately, books on her reading list, and the responsibility we each have for our own education. I hope you’ll enjoy the topics we stumbled upon! There’s truly so much to this story. We just barely scratched the surface.
And for your reference, here are links to a few of the things we mentioned:
- “The Element” by Sir Ken Robinson
- Narcissus flower
- Author Patrick O’Brian
- “Your Invitation to a Modest Breakfast” by Hannah Gamble
- This American Life, Harper High School: Part One and Part Two
