Michaelmas Joy and Celebration!
Twenty six years ago I was the founding teacher for Cedar Springs Waldorf School which began here at White Feather Ranch on Michaelmas Day, September 29,2989. The next year I wrote the Michaelmas play that has been performed every year at the school for 25 years! It now includes four of the grades and the children are just wonderful.
Each year I give my art prints of the Michael-Child to the second grade that will be the brave knights to fight the dragon ( made by the 6th grade) and tell them how with kind thoughts and good deeds they can ride their winged horse over the abyss, conquer the dragon and follow St. Micha-el way of golden light. Here is this year’s 2nd grade and the fine young lad playing Micha-el, Cadence, told me, “This is a mighty picture and you are too.” How heart warming!
A verse/song from the play.
HERE I STAND, STRONG AND BRIGHT, FOLLOW THE WAY OF SHINING LIGHT. HERE BELOW, AS ABOVE. SUN IN MY HEART WITH GOLDEN LOVE, BRAVE AND CLEAR, THANKFUL, TRUE, COURAGE IN ALL THE DEEDS I DO!
