    Alison, mother of eight, breastfeeds her youngest daughter, Sarah, 2, at the kitchen table in their two-bedroom cabin on a commune in the redwood forest. Past a gate marked, ‘Private Property—Keep Out’, the Murphy family lives with no plumbing, indoor bathroom, heat or central air. While their close to off-grid living conditions make normal chores extra difficult at times, Alison still manages to keep her children homeschooled, playing games, fed, and integrated with outside activities.

    Nice frame that captures this mother's strength within the chaos and complexity of her life.
