Anthony’s Blog March 31, 2017

This week in our Monday morning gathering, Deepak started a new feature called ‘What happened in history today?’ Deepak told us that there was a powerful earthquake in Alaska in 1914. Today also the shoe lace was invented and the very first telephone call was made from New York to Boston. Last but not least, the very first blood transfusion took place in Brussels. After that everybody shared their weekend and then John told us about the New Moon. Then we talked about last week’s weather and we sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to John. We also welcomed Maria’s sister, Rebecca who will be working with us.
In our Thursday morning college, the Fibre Art group taught us about the flower. To start off everybody dressed up as a flower and then Deepak told us about the parts of the flower. Daniel talked to us about the uses of flowers such as at weddings, anniversaries, funerals, graduation and performances. After that, Elliot and the Fibre Art group performed a play showing the blossoming of the flowers which attract the bees which in turn pollinate the blossoms. Before our short break, we sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to Monique. Then we gathered into Circle Hall to practice our bell playing and speech for our Parsifal play.
On Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, we broke into our eurythmy, painting, reading, writing, art studio, walking, games and dancing groups.
