When on the breath of Autumn's breeze, From pastures dry and brown, Goes floating, like an idle thought, The fair, white thistle-down; O, then what joy to walk at will, Upon the golden harvest-hill! 💜

We are on our second week of Albrecht Dürer’s Praying Hands, which means we are drawing it. Each child picked out a dark colored paper and was given only white and black colored pencils. .
We already discussed Dürer’s use of line to give shape to objects in a previous picture study. So today is focusing on highlights and shadows. .
Since hands are one of the hardest things to draw I printed out a sphere for them to copy if they preferred, the focus here is lighting, not hand drawing, so the sphere makes that easier. .
We always do a picture study the first week, looking at the picture, then narrating about it. Then the second week of the same picture we work on an art skill that the picture covers. How do you do picture study? .
Link to bamboo cookbook holder, and colored pencils in my amazon store, in school supplies.
Like a lotus flower, we too have the ability to rise from the mud, bloom out the darkness and radiate into the world.

We found dozens of different cacti in Melbourne's Royal Botanic Gardens, so of course that meant testing the pain levels of each 🙈
(thanks for the inspiration, @coyotepeterson 😂)
I wonder...if this was a school trip, with a teacher directly responsible for the safety of a group of children, would pushing the physical boundaries like this have been allowed? 🤔
One day life will slow down and I won’t have a bunch of tiny little bodies to feed and get dressed every morning. My coffee won’t get cold before I drink it and I might have time for a real breakfast.
But I also won’t have these moments where my girls are cuddling on the living room floor before school.
Breakfast and warm coffee are overrated. Give me all the little people.

I`ve always loved this noun.
It`s such a small and beautifully formed word, that holds such great impact.
With it`s three letters it describes connection, pleasure, Divinity, distortion, control, secrecy, titillation, power, energy, creativity and a multitude of other themes.
As a race, we get to decide what we do with this word and the experiences that it relates to.
What are we ready to let go of?
What no longer serves?
And how, as an individual and as a planetary species, do we want SEX to be a part of our lives?
What role do you, do we, want it to play?
Sex isn`t about to disappear off the map of human existence.
It`s part of our adventure in a human body?
So, how about we switch it up drastically and lovingly allow SEX to be a part of our lives, without shame and held in a place of beauty, reverence and celebration?
What could our life look life if we wholeheartedly chose and pursued that?
If one day I moved to another place without letting anyone know in advance.
It’s just because I am tired of dramas around and I know that’s not what I need.
It takes lots of courage to do so but it needs implosion.
Nothing everything needs time to make a decision.
Better to leave an uncomfortable situation earlier rather than forced to stay.
You can’t change someone’s life even though you explained already.
Not everything needs to be explained to realized, you must to observe subtle things to keep it alive.
Long story short, you need to make a change to feel better, to be happy, to feel alive.
