Wanderings of a witch

Study session with Dawn of the Day

The year has not turned out to be what everyone has expected.

I had to head up to school last night to work on grades, graduation speeches and several other things and as I was heading home the sun was setting in the west.  I took a minute at this time to stop on a hill that overlooks the baseball diamond and thought back over all the broken dreams these students have suffered.  There I sat in my truck kinda of imagining that a baseball game was taking place even though the field had not even been used this year. I sat and wondered about all the sterling pitching performances that were supposed to of been, the great defensive plays that would of built the confidence of the players and cheers from the fans, the spectacular game winning hits that would of helped the player succeed at the next level, and the difference in the students lives between what has happened and what was expected to happen.

After reading the graduation speeches this evening which were very very good by the way, I was impressed that the seniors understood what was happening and knew it was beyond any ones control. They were sad but accepting and were looking forward to their next steps in life.  They were ready to put this in their past and move on to the next stage whether it be college, work or the armed forces.

I have always said that students were the best to adjust to life no matter what was thrown at them and here once again they have proven to me that they will get through this crisis and become even better young adults. They will be ready to take there places in an ever changing world and become the leaders of tomorrow.  They will use the events and build upon them as they work to change to world and work within a world that has changed

WE do not know what to expect from the world tomorrow but those who can adjust and adapt will be the best prepared for the future. The class of 2020 will be better prepared for the future because of this simple little virus, the quarantine and the changes that are going to come

A perfectly rainy day

Study session by Dawn
Today is the most perfect day and the gods include days like today to give us time to relax, recoup, talk, tell stories, maintain and strengthen family bonds.
Yes it is raining but not hard, the ground is soaking up the moisture like a sponge to take care of all the vegetation coming to life as the god gets stronger every day. We need days like this so we will be able to produce everything we need to get through the cold winter that is 6 months away.
The temperature is very tolerable as long as you are wearing a sweat shirt or light jacket, so if you really need to you can get out side and work or walk or whatever else you need to do
But here is a suggestion, especially with the virus thing going on, get the family together and cook a meal, something warm and hearty, a soup/stew would be an excellent idea. have the kids help show them how to mix the ingredients, cut the vegetables, cut up the meat. Make them part of the process, help them learn what it means to fix a meal, set the table do the dishes.
Then when that’s done get out a card game or a puzzle something that everyone can enjoy and participate in, and instead of looking at this day as a rainy cool inconvenience look at this day as a chance to family. tell stories about the family so the children can learn about their ancestors, tell jokes laugh and have fun. Families dont have good fun together today as much as they had in the past. The kids are going to remember days like this a lot more than days in which you HAVE to go out and work in the rain or HAVE to go to the grocery or HAVE to ……
And later in the afternoon as everyone is winding down, take a nap, turn on an old movie and just relax. The gods knew that the people needed to rest from time to time, and made days like this so that we would have to rest and may I dare say it FAMILY.
I hope you all as my family have a most perfect day today
