2 post in 1 night! Wow! I'm on a roll!!Blah. Actually,I just can't sleep!!
Today is Michaelmas.It is a time for celebrating strength and courage, for facing dragons, external and internal. It is a time for harvest, a time for storing away that which we need for the cold dark months ahead. The flashing meteor showers are said to be the sword he wields for us;each falling star is made of iron-the iron we need to strengthen the resolution of our heart.Michael beckons us to find the spirit to come alive through the dying year. The seed-thoughts of the summer can be harvested now as deeds.
We celebrated it on Saturday b/c Kinderhaus did their celebration then We have had our dragon out on our kitchen table all week,and K requested I draw a dragon on her chalkboard. No pic of that though b/c it was a horrible drawing!! Kevin asked why there was a green horse with wings on the chalkboard!
Anyways, K wore red, her brave dragon fighting color and off we went!
The sign announcing Michaelmas,yeah it says dragon day, I know. She has to call it that b/c most people do not know about Michaelmas:
