Quote from book: Endangered Minds

"How can children bombarded from birth by noise, frenetic schedules, and the helter-skelter caretaking of a fast-paced adult world learn to analyze, reflect, ponder? How can they use quiet inner conversation to build personal realities, sharpen and extend their visual reasoning?"

I want to create a haven where there is time for reflecting and pondering. Lots of quiet in both time and space. In both physical surroundings and time schedule (or lack thereof). It's a constant battle in busy southern California, but it's a battle I am committed to fighting.
