Where's Heartwood? I want to come to your solstice party next year! Casey Morrigan Two Acre Wood Sebastopol California -----Original Message----- From: cohousing-l-admin [at] cohousing.org [mailto:cohousing-l-admin [at] cohousing.org]On Behalf Of Mac & Sandy Thomson Sent: Thursday, December 26, 2002 7:34 AM To: cohousing-l [at] cohousing.org Subject: [C-L]_Winter Solstice at Heartwood >From Sandy, It was 5:30 pm, children and adults scurried in the semi darkness through the snow on their way to the yurt in the woods. There was excitement and anticipation in the air. As I entered the yurt it was dark except for candle light and it was quiet even though it was filled with kids sitting in chairs circled around a spiral made of evergreens dotted with crystals, shells and other sparkling items. In the center was a woman dressed in white seated by a tall candle. When everyone was seated a flute started to play and one child at a time walked the spiral with an unlit candle in hand. As they approached the angel their candle was lit and they walked outward with the light. They carefully set the candle down somewhere along the spiral to light the way for others. It was quiet except for the flute and the fire in the woodstove softly crackling. The faces around the spiral were filled with wonder. After everyone (including the adults) had a chance to walk to the center and return with the light, we all walked in the cold and darkness (except for the amazing moon) out of the woods and into the warm common house for a potluck. The potluck was followed by a Solstice story told in the hearth room and a program of poems and songs put on by the children of Heartwood Home School Coop. Happy Holidays to all. However you choose to celebrate them! _______________________________________________ Cohousing-L mailing list Cohousing-L [at] cohousing.org Unsubscribe and other info: http://www.cohousing.org/cohousing-L _______________________________________________ Cohousing-L mailing list Cohousing-L [at] cohousing.org Unsubscribe and other info: http://www.cohousing.org/cohousing-L
