today is day 2 of peace and quiet...hudson returned to 8th grade at the middle school on tuesday(home school is a gift that i enjoyed for a year but i'm really excited not to use this gift this year! ) ...and mac drove himself to school on the first day yesterday! (and in my car!) definitely a new era at our house!
i almost don't know where to begin with an hour by myself...this is the first time in over a year that i have space and time without commitments, or people in the house. and it is the first time in two years that i am in the states when school starts.
for the past two summers i have had the joy and glorious opportunity, gift etc, to go to england and attend the wonderful, ecclectic greenbelt arts festival!
it has been my refreshment...an opportunity to absorb and learn rather than create and pour out!
greenbelt has given me hope, given me new ideas, new friendships and a passion for justice.
i really miss it...so here are a few photos from last year...and you can check out willzhead for an update or jonny baker. miss all you guys! have a cup of tea at the tiny tea tent for me! and give maggie and steve foster, karen ward, jonny and jenny and steve collins big hugs from me, in proper english fashion of course!
