Knowledge is in the World

In the fields opposite our home, where the children play, there is lots of knowledge. There are birds and trees to name, bridges to be built; there are sticks to carry and holes to dig, there is team work and strength and resilience. On the bookshelves of our home, in the books that our children read, there is lots of knowledge. There are Romans and Crystals and Dinosaurs; there are secret worlds full of imaginative wonder. In the schools that our children are lucky enough to attend, there is lots of knowledge. The teachers are brimful of it and they share it freely and with love. And then there is the knowledge that is in the world beyond our home. In the places, we visit and the people we meet; the landscapes we see and the ancient stories that we learn. Somewhere very far away, in the middle of the Pacific, is Easter Island. It is a long, long way from home, and through a wonderful set of circumstances, we are lucky enough to be going there in April. Rapa Nui here we come! And we simply cannot wait to see, the knowledge that is in the world.
