Summer Holidays

“Just as one spoils the stomach by overfeeding and thereby impairs the whole body, so can one overload and choke the mind by giving it too much nourishment. For the more one reads the fewer are the traces left of what one has read; the mind is like a tablet that has been written over and over. Hence it is impossible to reflect; and it is only by reflection that one can assimilate what one has read. If one reads straight ahead without pondering over it later, what has been read does not take root, but is for the most part lost.”
― Arthur Schopenhauer

As we approach the end of our summer term and get ready to take a much needed break there is a beautiful window opening that soothes our tired eyes. The sounds coming through bring memories of the year that has past; the journey we have made and as we stop to look and listen there is in that split second of pure silence a most wonderous resonance. It is this resonance that will sustain, nourish and hold us throughout our summer break whereupon we look forward to returning in September with a well digested year and a healthy hunger for more: more learning, more creativity, more friendship and a combining of our own unique rhythm.
