Yesterday, Ava and I went leaf picking. There’s no denying it was just as fun as it might sound, even with a heavy cold niggling both of us. And so it seemed like the perfect time to begin a Nature Table, which I hope is a constant in our home from now on.
One of the loveliest and most striking ideas I’ve come across from Steiner readings (of which I am yet at the very, very beginning) is the notion that seasons are the best way to create a rhythm in your family, and life. Providing a way to connect one another to the natural world, the Nature Table is a constant reminder in our every day lives to the changes outside, and the beauty of each season.
