What is an extraordinary life? Why is this what I seek for my family?

I know it has nothing to do with ‘getting ahead,’ ‘ keeping up with the Joneses,’ or expecting prodigy-esque behaviors from my children. I’m quite happy to find balance, eschew the consumptive behaviors of my particular neighbors, and celebrate my childrens’ normal (even if vastly creative & articulate) intelligences.

It has something to do with Passion and Bliss Seeking and Resistance to Widget-dom.

I’ll be ruminating on these thoughts over the next few days. I’ll share as I understand.

Please, do share your thoughts on the phrase: What is an extraordinary life? I anticipate your comments eagerly…
