Looking For a Secular Florida Umbrella School?

Sunday, May 23, 2004


That's what it's all about. Whether it's right wing vs. left wing, classical vs. unschooling, or country vs. city, you've got to find a balance.

How do those of you who live in remote areas deal with a lack of cultural resources?

How do those of you living downtown find room to breathe?

Living in the suburbs, the middle ground, you can't really avail yourself of the unlimited opportunities found in a major city. Sure, you think, we're close enough; we can ride in and visit whenever we want. But do you, on a regular basis?

Instead of planning a whole day around a whirlwind tour of one art museum, how wonderful to stroll in, sketchbook in hand, and enjoy a leisurely afternoon in the company of one great painting. Or drop in on rehearsals for the local opera or ballet.

But what do you do when you want to plant a garden? Or take a walk without seeing another soul?

How do you find your balance?
