small circle

Create around one at least a small circle where matters are arranged as one wants them to be.
Anna Freud

As I walk around the house this morning I am hearing music coming from the living room, all three children trying to figure out a song they know, one on the piano, another on electric guitar, and another on the recorder.  Jonathan is humming along with them in the kitchen as he whips up another blueberry based breakfast.

And around the house are small circles of art and building and reading and creating.  All carefully arranged to be within arms reach.  Items collected and brought to each place with a plan for creation.

I will be away from this space for the next week, arranging my own small circle of the five of us within arms reach, focusing on being together.  Which is truly, just the way I want it to be.

For now, I am heading into the living room.  To join the music.
