Taking Care

Today we adults take care of our children, in the hopes they will return the favor, tomorrow. We are all of us, today and tomorrow, caretakers of the earth. 

But today we’re in crisis: economic crisis, naturally, and also a health crisis. To recover, we need to take care.

And it’s the economists and the virologists who tell us how to behave: take distance, no hugging…

But these prescriptions, these mandates, what are they offering the young? Fear and uncertainty.

Who’s listening to our children’s voices, today? Who’s inviting them to sleep under the stars, tonight? Or will they just have the light of a cell phone, in the dark? 

Will they hear the frogs singing at midnight?

What dreams will they have to recount, tomorrow?

These are questions we take very seriously here at la Luna nel Pozzo. Guiding questions for our ‘21 summer festival, “Taking Care”. If we don’t take care of our children, our earth today, what will be of tomorrow? 


“Caring” implies “curiosity”. It all starts with the act of opening to the other. “The Other” could be the other sex, the other culture, the other age, religion, condition. First you have to listen to the wind in the trees, go to nature’s school. “Be a tree” 

A dozen years ago, we planted 5000 trees here. That’s how we started our schooling, taking care of those tiny plants, watering them every night for 4 years running.

Today those plants are our “sensory grove”, where you can find yourself: a place that today gives shadow to the children’s play, where they make their nests, to sway in the breeze, where they sing and howl like wolves, tell their dreams and their fears.

This year, we offer a space where everyone— big, little, round, flat or curious as they may be, can discover the joy of taking care: care of the others, care of themselves. Together.
