it is dawning on me
just how much revolutionary growth
is about to happen
through this path we’re on
Anja going to Weaving Earth
surfing the gatherings related to this
realizing the fear i have around disasters
if i learn
how to step in nature
how to live, survive, thrive
if there is a village
i have an extended Taiwanese family
but geographics and life have scattered us.
i have very little experience living closer to nature ~
i remember two under-the-stars sleeping experiences:
once, laying awake all night in a father-daughter girl scouts overnighter
& another time, with a friend, in a sleeping bag under the stars at Harbin.
these past few weeks
everything feels like it is converging
my whole life – all the ‘disparate’ streams –
into one selfsame, huge, vital river.
the path that led to me, then Ari, reading Sacred Economics & exploring the writing of Charles Eisenstein
the synchronicity of his article on Deschooling Convivium being in this month’s issue of Life Learning Magazine that we subscribe to
the fortune of Weaving Earth starting locally last year, and Anja turning just-6 and entering this community
(after all that consideration of moving for a Sudbury school, here, suddenly, is a great, local option that feels in alignment.)
the fear – freakout – that homeschooling/unschooling was going to be some sort of trap or death sentence
has given way this past month
to an incredible gratitude
that it is actually a golden key
to her, my, our freedom
thank you, life.
