Another year, 2009 will hopefully be the year I get in the swing of blogging;)-

Well, today I slept in, I have been so exhausted after these past few months of holiday/b-day chaos, it felt so good to sleep in. I miss the old days (prechildren) when that was a daily option, if I should so choose it. Once I was up and about, I did my daily yoga, which I am finally recommitting to after some emotionally destabilizing events sent my head into a whirlwind last spring... finally healing from that, thank the goddess and a few beautiful magical friends who have carried me through with their sweet sweet love and light.

Currently, I am 8 days in on a cleanse, which I have been craving more than the desire to eat, so far this cleanse has been the easiest yet, though I am having some odd sensations that I have never experienced before. I have been trying to put it into words... I keep having these moments that feel like deja vu or nostalgia with a tinge of panic, but not frightening, it almost feels as though alongside my body physically detoxing, my emotional body is letting go of some body memories from past experiences, I wonder if anyone else has experienced this? Well anyhow, I am determined that 2009 is going to be the year that I stay in my center, stay present, continue healing, transform what needs to be transformed in my patterns, and continue to transmute the unhealthy conditioning of my childhood, so that I can be fully alive, loving and joyful for my family.

This first blog entry after a long hiatus was suppose to be short and sweet, but lots is pouring out...

This late afternoon we went to our favorite secret forest to hike. We hiked in about 3:30pm, Jay and I knew we wouldn't make it out before nightfall, but didn't mention this to the boys because they tend to get themselves all freaked out over mountains lions, bob cats, dragons, Jenny Green Teeth~you know;)- all the amazing creatures that live in their wild imaginations! On our way down the mountain we had several spectacular views of the setting sun. We sang songs to the sun as it went off to bed and shouted goodnight. As we continued our walk down the mountain we howled for the full moon to rise and like magic there it was suddenly beginning to peak over the treetops in the distance. Howling and shouting out our first hello's to the moon we began hiking into the dark dark forest ahead. As we hiked the children requested a song to help the moon rise and shine its light down on us, we thought and thought, but could not recall a single song about the moon, so I made up a song, inspired by the often used waldorf education phrase, "I see the moon and the moon see's me"...it goes like this;

ooo ooo ooo
I see the moon and the moon sees me
ooo ooo ooo
I see the moon and the moon sees me

Come shine your full moon brightness,
Come shine your light on me.
Come shine your full moon brightness,
As I walk through the trees,
As I walk through the dark trees.

ooo ooo ooo
I see the moon and the moon sees me
ooo ooo ooo
I see the moon and the moon sees me

Come shine your full moon magic, the magic that you weave,
Come shine your full moon magic, the magic I receive.
As I walk through the trees,
As I walk through the dark trees.

Jay says that once the new version of garage band is released for the mac, it will automatically record the sheet music for me, as I truly am not that musical, though I love to sing and make up little ditties for the boys... I'll post the tune once I have it computer generated:)

Well, here's hoping that I will find time to continue sharing throughout the year about our families homeschool journey and all the magic of parenting from an earth centered heart space. A blessed new years!

Sounds like a beautiful life you live. I wanted to share a couple of classes I teach that seem to be right up your alley... For your children I teach a free-spirited yoga class at the Saturday Market, every Saturday at 2 and 3 in San Lorenzo Park... For the goddess in you, I teach an empowering dance class for women only, let me know if you want more info, my email is bchristopher08@gmail... I found your blogspot on freecycle!
take care and enjoy every minute!

I am glad to see that some other mama make up songs for their boys. At least you can remember a tune!!! Mine changes every time I sing it.
