"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition." ~ Steve Jobs

Happy, Healthy and Prosperous 2017 to all of you! I am very much looking forward to a fresh start again this year. I have spent some time during the New Moon to set my intentions, and I can say, with no reservations, that this will be the best year ever!

I have spent the last couple of months thinking about a lot of things, including, of course, the future of LWI. I have talked about some of my ideas in the conference Facebook Group, and spoken to my family, and really done a lot of soul searching, thinking about what I really want for myself and for my family in 2017. And I have come to a decision...

We will not be organizing a Life Without Instructions Conference in 2017. We do hope to come back in 2018, with the most amazing Unschooling/Life Learning Gathering ever!

I will instead be using my time this year to play more with my kids, and focus on other things like travel, and connecting more with my local community. I will be starting a Forest School for All group in Hackettstown, NJ, as well as planning some small camping trips and other events that all of you are, of course, invited to attend. (and I do sincerely hope to see at least some of you in 2017)

I will also continue on as Co-Producer on Lainie Liberti's weekly webshow, For the Love of Learning, and I have another show featuring some amazing unschooled kids in the works, it should be premiering in the next month or two. And I will still be the US Distribution Coordinator for the beautiful film that we screened at LWI 2016, Being and Becoming

So, thank you all for all that you contributed to LWI 2015 and 2016, and stay tuned for news about LWI 2018!

With Love and Gratitude,
Anne Boie
