I've blogged a lot lately - in my head, that is. Somehow I haven't got the energy to blog (as in actually doing it) when the day is over and my children are asleep. I usually fall asleep myself knitting or reading a book. Even though I think it indicates an active and healthy life being soundly tired, I think that in my case it also has something to do with the lack of daylight. I think the hours where the sun actually was visible during the last month can be counted on the fingers of a single hand. So I've really tried to be aware and ready to enjoy every little beam of light coming my way.
At our waldorf kindergarten we've walked with our lanterns, a celebration to remind us that we need to carry our own inner light through the time of darkness.
So, we're trying to keep our inner lights at a full blaze, we light candles, lanterns and fires, while we're looking forward to the return of the Sun. Happy winter, everyone!
