I often feel that trying to live simply in a city is like walking uphill against the parade… everyone else is going somewhere different and they are all walking with such conviction in their steps. Sometimes I feel scared that we have chosen to live against the flow… I wonder if taking our children out of the rat race is really the right thing to do. And, it can be lonely too… if everyone is rushing off to soccer and judo and gymnastics, who is there left to play with us?
Luckily for us, our Waldorf School community is a strong and like-minded group in this crazy, busy, city. For our own reasons, in our own ways, we are all trying to live simply, to slow the pace, to breath in the little things and live in the moment, knowing that the squirrel IS important. I feel so lucky to have found like-minded people to walk uphill with and, to any of you who might read this, and to any community of people out there who are also following their hearts although everyone else is floating past, fast, I thank you for helping make my family’s journey a little easier.
I would like to take this opportunity to share our Waldorf Schools upcoming events. Maple Village has been a ray of sunshine in our lives and if you are in our area and would like to learn more about our school, you will be welcomed with open arms. Please also pass this information on to anyone you know who might like to join us too.
Don’t hesitate to contact me if you need a friendly face in the crowd :-)
Blessings and magic,
