I have been so far away ... here are some pictures for you ...We had an ice storm. It blew out my telephone, but we kept our power. Odd thing about the beauty of events like these ... crystal shimmers on every last thing it touches, but heavy and devastating if one or another cannot hold the weight. Something here about bending under the force of it, accepting that it marks and changes us, and we unbend in the sun that melts the ice later. But refuse to let the heaviness move us and we are liable to snap.

Can our homes melt ice we refuse to bring inside? Can Love heal a wound we hide?

It is time. It is time.

May you have some peaceful quiet this Solstice weekend in which to unbend from any storms which may have overtaken you. May the blessings of sleep and dreams heal you and lead you to your new year.

God bless us all, everyone.

Hi there,
I don't often respond but felt I had to with such sincere words. They touched me in a way I didn't expect. I feel that I have been distant too lately, probably necessary healing going on in our home.
I do beleive in the cycles of life but always hated winter when I was younger, it seemed to symbolise death to me. Your words have reminded me it can mean rebirth, it had spiritual resonance for me as my faith has changed over the years, I hold great belief in Mother Earth and can only really call myself a Pagan these days.
Yes, the winter is a really good time to heal and regain energy as we sleep, just like the plants do. We should follow nature, not fight it. Thanks for sharing those words, they meant so much to me personally. Good wishes to you and yours in the new year. BW Tricia
