Nirvana Dawson – For as long as I remember a dialogue has been running through my mind begging me to write it down. Like a busy parent shooing away an errant child I’ve spent too much time saying “I’m busy.” This blog is my way of saying yes – to life and all its lessons, to the hunger for something more, and to that magic that tells me stories.
I live in the mountains with my family. We laugh often, explore a lot, learn everyday and frequently go a little bit mad to the sounds of children.
I dream of a self cleaning house and unlimited chocolate.
I homeschool, I’m vegan, I love books and comfortable pyjamas, my feet are always itching a little for travel and I always have a pile of unfolded laundry somewhere in my house.
Daniel – Is my Gemini, so he is my husbands. I like one of them more than the other.
He gives awesome hugs, always smells good and is prone to saying things that make me wonder if he’s serious.
He is love, walking around my house everyday.
Bodhi – Is complicated and all kinds of wonderful. He gives the biggest hugs in the world and he jumps up and down at the mention of sushi.
He loves to build lego, listen to audio books, swim, explore, cook and create.
He is extremely sweet and incredibly loud.
He has ASD, ADHD, ODD, dyslexia, dysgraphia and dyspraxia. He has an amazing mind.
Sebastian – Is my little yogi, my martial arts kid and the boy who asks to listen to classical music and opera and interpret it. He makes friends with tiny shrimp in rockpools and asks big questions about why the world is the way it is.
He is the best big and little brother you could ask for. He has endless patience. He thinks watermelon is a food group and makes me laugh every single day.
Aria – Loves everyone. She’s witty and kind, demanding and hilarious, sassy and sensitive. She is the adoring mother of far too many dolls who are all called baby. Her happy squeal makes your heart melt. She believes chocolate is the answer to everything.
