As the days get shorter, we find ourselves turning off the lights once again.
Spending one evening each week in the quiet candlelight–a way of reconnecting with each other in the midst of busy days, of taking a little rest from the noise that fills our lives, from the constant doing that prevails in our world.
A way to give thanks to the earth for supporting us, by taking a little less from her one night each week.
A moment given over to stillness, reflection, gratitude.
A long quiet in-breath that is by its very nature a meditation on where light really comes from, a lesson on how to tend the fires within.
Sometimes we make music. Sometimes we tell stories, ones we’ve been saving and ones we never thought we knew.
Sometimes we just sit quietly in the darkness, and go to bed, already rested.
