Anyone want the recipe ...
When we found our way down into the Witch's Garden on thursday morning, the children had the most beautiful time together. They were all really happy ... and really enjoying each other ... and their play was morphing from one thing to another with the greatest of ease.
At one point, Anna got fairly quiet and was off to the side in a bush. She seemed happy and engaged in something and I let her be for ages ... when I went over to see what she was up to ... just to check a little closer that all was well in her corner of the world, I asked, 'What are you up to Anna?' She looked up from her task in the grass and leaves and said, 'I'm making joy.'
A little while later she came close and said, 'This is for you danella.' As I looked and recieved her handful of leaves and grass and bits, she looked at me and said, 'It's some joy for you.'
How gorgeous is that?!!
This pic was a while after the joy making. Anna and Sam were playing together and Anna got quite mesmerised by the grass ... it was almost shimmering with aliveness and softness and looked totally inviting. She sort of just fell into it and lay back for a while ... in the lush softness looking like she had just arrived in heaven.
