It's Coming! (Dedicated to Kathryn)


The longest night.

My last name gives me reason to believe that my love for Celtic voices is lodged in my DNA. And last night I discovered a delightful example of the bridge between contemporary and long-ago Celtic expression
here, thanks to a blogger who is able to claim a much closer and more distinct connection than the one I imagine.

Turn up your sound, take a few moments, and

The days will begin to lengthen and the dark will recede ~

Happy Solstice to you too!!! Your journal entry was an amazing way to start this day. I will be celebrating with good food, family, a good friend, some wine, a fire in the fireplace, and a toast to both the return of the sun and the turn of the season.

Goosebumps watching the video. A bit of tears too as I realize what a gift my children are to my world of imagination. They are still young enough to want a story read at bedtime, even a fairy tale at times. It has been sheer pleasure to spend the last twelve years visiting the world of fairies, enchanted forests, castles and kings, flying creatures, riding the Polar Express, visiting Narnia...
Lots more to come.

Thank you for this wonderful start to the day. The video was just what I needed to remind me to slow down, enjoy the magic and wonder around me, and stop being so caught up in getting the job done and doing it to perfection.
I will definitely be celebrating the light today, despite the lack of it through the clouds and fog here!
