Not because of victories
but for the common sunshine,
the largess of the spring.
Not for victory
but for the day's work done
as well as I was able;
not for a seat upon the dais
but at the common table.
Charles Reznikoff (1894-1976)
Thankful for my lovely daughters and daughter-in-law for a lovely birthday afternoon tea...
Grateful for fun in the sun
The pleasure of her first motor bike ride
Old school music
Some new board games (see here for how Takenoko is played)
And a new card game - great for up to about 10 players
Playing with bunnies
Listening to podcasts for inspiration for the new year...
Looking forward to a new year and to the pleasure of connecting with my readers. I've enjoyed the rapport centred around books, ideas, and home education - feasting at the 'common table.' Thank you to all who have visited and commented or emailed me privately. It wouldn't be worth blogging if you didn't visit and talk to me!
