The drive down allowed us time to enjoy the changing of leaves and the beautiful pink sunset....
The school auditorium was filled with students and parents of all ages....the band warmed up as we looked around...
I appreciated the steiner-esque reconstruction of the auditorium stage....the right angle really is so harsh and rigid, afterall!
I also loved the soothing effects of Lazure...especially in a gym!!
*sorry for the fuzzy photos...there was so much movement and my camera isn't the greatest!*
Founded by pediatrician Karl Konig, the Camphill Movement is inspired by anthroposophy—the philosophy, world view, and spiritual path of Rudolf Steiner....yet another reason for me to respect this man. Viewing the human being as a beautiful spirit, despite physical limitations...this is a call for social change made decades ago! I hope people are listening....imagine if schools everywhere adopted this holistic form of special education...
I danced with a handful of the Camphill Residents throughout the evening....they were some of the happiest people I have ever met. They danced with such life and excitement! Besides W, my dance partner for the evening was a delightfully pink-haired girl from Camphill named Iris. Every time we returned to each other during the dancing, she was all smiles and happiness. She exclaimed many times how happy she was! This was the general feeling, and I enjoyed each moment until it was time to go home.
It really was an amazing evening, which left me to my thoughts for the drive home. The life we give our children is so important. What we surround them with, how we teach them to treat others, how we react. You are life itself, and it is beautiful...no matter who you are, or how you dance.
The winner of the stockmar crayons....drumroll....
