The Quadrivium

Leave a comment

Things are going well with my own personal daily quadrivium of:  dance, blogging, reading and  piano.  When I get back to running more regularly again it will be a pentathlon daily.   Of course, life gets in the way of what you want to do.  Below wiki naturally throws some light on this subject:

The quadrivium  are the four subjects, or arts, taught after teaching the trivium. The word is Latin, meaning “the four ways” (or a “place where four roads meet”) and its use for the four subjects has been attributed to Boethius or Cassiodorus in the 6th centuryTogether, the trivium and the quadrivium comprised the seven liberal arts (based on thinking skills),as opposed to the practical arts (such as medicine and architecture).

The quadrivium consisted of arithmetic, geometry, music, and astronomy. These followed the preparatory work of the trivium made up of grammar, logic, and rhetoric


What do you do daily, weekly, monthly that makes you feel creative?  What is your idea of fun?  I have been trying to think of the second biggest fear I have in my  life  and am stymied!  As noted, dancing was the primo, numero uno, #1 fear.   Read that overcoming our biggest fears can give us our biggest joys.  That has been true in spades for me.

Below is a beautifully illustrated manuscript that I could not resist inserting.  What do I think after looking at it.   The slow cooking food movement.  I ponder “process” and not just end results of arriving-getting to someplace, or  some accomplishment.  Slowing down when necessary in life.  Living more in the  NOW.  Dance has been fantastic at concentrating the mind that way.
