THIS IS IT, THE PREMIER OF RAINBOW BEINGS FLASHMOB VIDEO! Click this link[fve] [/fve]Rainbow Beings PreK Flashmob from Marla McLean on Vimeo.[/fve]

Yesterday was summer solstice. Yesterday was the last day of school. How perfect that this was the day the children got to watch the Rainbow Beings video and then dance. What a great ritual for the most colorful light filled day of the year.

And to add to this auspicious post, tonight and tomorrow is The Super Moon, when the moon is brightest and closest to earth for 2013.

All are a metaphor for the random acts of joy and light  that these rainbow beings brought to Union Station.

It is also a metaphor for our school community and the web of light it creates within, throughout, and out into the Universe.

“For my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream.” -Vincent Van Gogh

Singing This Little Light of Mine

Dancing in the Moonlight

Listening to The Moon poem

Placing shooting stars around our necks

Holding hands and making wishes

All around and within

Every moment of light and dark is a miracle.” -Walt Whitman
