The first time I met Linda, we were having an argument about hypnobirthing. I didn't think I liked her much, which was a gut reaction to being disagreed with. Admittedly, my internet style at the time was rather self-absorbed - not that I've improved much - and I didn't do a great job of talking about the issue in that particular disagreement.
Today, however, I love her words, even when I don't agree with them. She spends a lot of time, like me, sitting and reading and thinking. Then she writes it out thoughtfully and authentically. I quite admire her. On her blog this afternoon I read this lovely post, "thoughts on learning," which anyone interested in school and unschool and education should read. Excellent points, all around. Despite the fact that I have a secret prejudice against Gatto.
