We have appreciated the adventurous spirit in which this “community” has engaged the challenges and gifts of taking an inward day, allowing the people and rhythms of our lives to adjust around us…the willingness to work with children and family to experiment with this practice, the more subtle and descriptive language emerging to describe the experience, the discoveries. One friend slept for a whole day, a much needed rest. I have found that artistic expression, within the field we have held together, intensifies the creative flow, both in dance and my painting. I will attach a painting I did of “silence”, inspired by the photo on Anne LeClaire’s book (taken by her son). I greet you on behalf of Glennifer, Peri, Beth, and Dorian, too.
