mowing the lawn
thinking this forever.. adding page.. while adding parenting page from Alison Gopnik‘s manifesto against parenting..
‘this prescriptive picture is fundamentally misguided’
such similarities of prescriptive ness that isn’t natural.. and so .. bad for us.. and too.. how we then use its normative ness to shame those who don’t (ie: bad lawn = bad person; mother who breast feeds too long = bad person; et al)
imagine all the time/money/energy we spend on lawns.. for what exactly..? to look nice..?
fitting with this ted – on nature being everywhere.. we just need to see it..
we just need to not prescriptive parent it..
we just need to not.. mow it down.. so it looks pretty..
