glorious dawn

today we celebrate the feast of the nativity of Mary.  this icon is one of my favorites.  i love Joachim and Anna together at home, the quiet and careful midwives, the lovely bowl of water.  in some versions, the bowl is even big enough to imagine that Anna might have had a waterbirth!

we’re going to head downstairs after naps and color this lovely image of Anna and Mary from Waltzing Matilda.
