time to play

I’m delighted to have been invited by Woodland Gnome to participate in a foray into quotes:: three days, three quotes . . . though as you’ll see, I found a few more than one or three.  Summer days are here, and we are getting as much time as we can outside in the light, soaking it all in through our skin:: sun thirsty as we’ve been after our adventure in Arizona where it was summer before summer!  I’m getting started on this first day of posts with some photographs from the evening of summer solstice.

“While we try to teach our children all about life,
our children teach us what life is all about.”~Angela Schwindt

“For truly it is to be noted, that children’s plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions”.~Montaigne

” Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future”. ~ Jean de la Bruyere

**********************

“Our children are like flowers to us.
Each one different.
Each one beautiful.
Each one growing strong with us.

Our children are like stars to us.
Each one sparkles.
Each one moves through the universe.
Each one closer to the heart of us.

Our children are like life to us.
Each one precious.
Each one unpredictable.
Each one having to let go of us.”~Nancy Wood

If you would like to engage in this ~three days of quotes~ blogging spree, I’d be happy to invite you (leave me a comment to indicate you’re interested) or:::just begin!

Woodland Gnome’s posting about Gifts and giving is a joy to read with many pearls of wisdom to digest and grow from, a visit to her garden is well worth the click it takes to get there 😉

  1. What wonderful quotations you’ve chosen, Creekrose. The first is my favorite, and so very true. Once your own are grown, I hope you’ll think about teaching others’ as well. You have such a deep understanding of the magic of childhood. Beautiful photos of your not so little ones! I’m glad you celebrate the solstice with them and expect it was a magical Father’s Day at your home! Thank you for the wonderful kind words and the link. Giant hugs, WG ❤ ❤ <3.

    1. Thanks! We love celebrating solstices and equinoxes WG, and the children thoroughly enjoy it::the fire, the circle, the singing, the preperations, the after, all of it . . . in a sense i feel like their everyday IS solsticey and equinoxy because they bring their whole selves to each moment daily, there’s no seperation of today and ‘solstice’ as an ‘other’ day and my wonderment is::will this fade as they grow or does it change and become who they are, embodying differently with growth, so solstices and equinoxes become a way of returning to sacred regularly should the everyday be less than, getting back to that magic so it doesn’t go away, just presents in other ways everyday? it’s a fascinating journey to be a part of to be sure, and everyday i have another question or learn something new:: even if sometimes it’s the same thing i learned yesterday! ❤

      1. beautifully expressed. Children grow towards the light, when love and light are a part of their every day life. But ultimately, each soul enters our world with its own map in hand. It will follow the paths it agreed to follow, and keep the appointments it is bound by karma to make. We teach them magic when they are young, and pray they remember how to access it along the way. Blessings to you and yours, M. ❤ ❤ ❤
