Idle August  -  6th-8th grade

August 18-20

Enjoy the lingering days of summer.

Being together. Being under the bright stars of the dark night sky (just a sliver of a moon).

Being quiet, relaxed, a time without stress. Nothing to do other than breath, listen and float with a cloud. Or float in the pond.

Or float a frisbee gently across the lawn in an Ultimate Frisbee game with the score always tied at 7 to 7.

Take these days for a simple gathering of young souls enjoying their world.

Be idle. Be real. Be you.

We will make new friends and practice the fine art of existing –

  • snacks,
  • games,
  • conversation,
  • music,
  • wandering in both mind and body,
  • settling into a quiet place and spirit.
