It's been a bit quiet on Rhythmic Silence. Once the children returned to school we had become riddled with all the new germs and illness that arise during the new school year and being around friends, old and new. Not to mention the children being cooped up for 6 hours a day which is diametrically opposed to how they spent the summer months, out of doors, breathing the fresh, warm air, getting dirty in the garden, and bathing in a pond or stream. Life is so different when you follow the rhythms of the 'school year'. In years passed, we've been lucky enough to be a part of the local Waldorf school, and then home school, and then public school (supplementing as much a possible the rhythms and loveliness learned through Waldorf education). This year, either for all the illness and other distractions that have come up as of late, we have had a bit of a hiatus. In many ways it shows. I won't go into how we each have missed out on the crafting, baking, less outside time, stories, songs, etc. because that would take several months worth of lamenting, so, I'll just let out my *sigh* of relief in knowing that Epiphany marks the end of our 'family rhythm celebrations hiatus'. Epiphany marks the day that we return to our simple celebrations of life and living in our rhythmic silence.
*Sundays will be just photo posting days. I will post our events from this evening to tie it all together then!
