Learning in Freedom

Welcome to Learning in Freedom, a blog all about the learning adventures (and mishaps) of the Allen family. My four children are unschooled, following their interests and passions every day and living the lives of their choosing. The purpose of this blog is to share our every day lives (and my not-so-humble opinons) with anyone interested in stopping by. We hope this will give a glimpse of how natural learning unfolds from day to day......

Lovely synchronicity


Today, Sierra and I were uploading and editing pictures from the last week, photos of Music on the Square with the Gavins, Bowmans, Chittums and Traaseths, photos of the storms moving through the last couple of days etc...

As I sat out in my art room organizing just now, a song came on from a CD that Zenmomma mixed. It was a James song titled "Waltzing Along". I had that weird feeling of "knowing" but I couldn't figure out why...there were words in the song that were familiar not by having heard them before but something else.

Then it hit me!! The words were on Laura's shirt she wore to Music on the Square last week...Kelli had given it to her when it didn't fit properly, a gift from the Mayer's in Canada (the same Mayers we got to hang out with at Life is Good last month) in sympathy for the Traaseth's not making it to the gathering which the shirts were created for.

Still following? It's ok, I'm confused too....but anyway, it was so cool to sit in my art room thinking about getting back to my art just about the time La is getting back to hers also. So cool to sit in my art room and think about collaborative energy and co-creation and simplifying and such things and then hear the words I was reading on my good friend just days ago.:) So cool. Especially when one doesn't expect it or plan for it or even realize that the words on the shirt were inspired by a James song (though one should have expected it).

Then I ran in from the art room to blog about it before I forgot. And here we are.....


Waltzing Along

Help comes when you need it most
I'm cured by laughter
Mood swings not sure I can cope
My life's in plaster (in plaster)

May your mind set you free
(chorus: opened by the wonderful)
May your heart lead you on
May your mind let you breathe all of disaster
(chorus: opened by the wonderful)
May your heart lead you on

These wounds are all self-imposed
Life's no disaster, disaster
All roads lead unto death-row
Who knows what's after

May your mind be wide open
May your heart beat strong
May your mind's will be broken
By this heart-felt song

May your mind set you free (Chorus: Be opened by the wonderful)
May your heart lead you on
May your mind let you breathe all of disaster (Chorus: Be opened by the
wonderful)
May your heart lead you on, may your heart lead you on
May your eyes let you see all of disaster
May your heart lead you on, lead you on
(Chorus: May your eyes be opened by the wonderful)
Set you free (Chorus: May your heart lead you on)
Lead you on

What a surprise for me to come and find such a lovely moment, and I was a part of it without even knowing.

I've been thinking of having the line "May your eyes be opened by the wonderful" added to my tattoo.

Hi, Ren!

Those are some wise, wise words! I love it! I want to paint it across a huge canvas, in bright colors!

Thanks!

I think I'm going to go paint it on my bathroom wall right this second...

Zen, you're in a lot of my lovely moments thanks to your art (and other things too)!
