Me: Hi Arlo, how are you?

Ibu Robin

I love stories of “ordinary” people doing “extraordinary” things.   People who work tirelessly to make the world a better place. They inspire the rest of us to give a little more, try a little harder, complain a little less…..

I recently watched the film Guerrilla Midwife  http://www.guerrillamidwife.org/,  a documentary about one such person, and her name is Robin Lim.  Continue reading

123 quiet and still is a great game on long car rides. I was always amazed when a group of kids could be quiet and still for more than two minutes but an island of 2 million for 24 hours….impossible…right?

Purnama (Full Moon)


The winter Silas was about 8 or 9 (I think) and Zeb around 4, I came across a book called When The Moon is Full by Frances Hamerstrom. In the book Frances describes full moon walks with her kids over the course of a year. What a beautiful way to spend time together discovering the night I thought. The awe and mystery that the nighttime held for her children was contagious. We decided to keep a similar journal of the 13 full moons that would grace our skies that year. The boys were thrilled with idea of a special walk each month, staying up late and exploring the mysterious nighttime. Continue reading
