AV in the third plane of development

Dr. Montessori observed the need for teens (those in the third plane of development) to have meaningful work to rebuild their self during the emotional storms of adolescence.  AV has found some meaningful work up in Asheville.  One of our friends from Firefly and Rivercane has purchased some property and is building a 12 x 13 cabin.  I’ve been trekking up to the Mountains every other weekend for the past month and a half.  I leave AV on the property.  He has his hanging tent and some food.  On a good weekend, he might even have a toothbrush.  I pick him up three days later.
