Mid Winter Searching




I always love this time of year, the very stillness of it rests inside my soul.
 A light in the darkness.
A time of peace to be still and to dream.
 Do I doubt the year that has passed? Some-things maybe but they cannot be changed only rested or resolved. In the darkness of my night I resolve to carry no demons forward, I never have, but all must be considered before Imbolc, before the new growth begins, before the pure dance of a new beginnings casts its velvety cloak around my shoulders. Before I move forward once more into the light xx
Peace and dreaming to you xxxxx too.

These silent days are deep and untamed...native to my soul.

I always think of your clothes frozen on the line in January. Do you remember that? Maybe you will add it to your blog sidebar again. It reflects who you are. xx

The words of wisdom my dear. Not to dwell on the things we can not change but to strive to enjoy the moments we can.
Happy New Year too.
That lovely shawl with its warmth encircling your shoulders reminds me of the one I have of my Great Grandmother's that she brought from Scotland in a trunk back in 1911 when she moved to Canada. It is threadbare in spots but I can feel her presence when I touch its dainty threads...
Take care.

Beautiful photos, and thought provoking words Lyn. Someone said to me today that this time of the year is drab and depressing. I see all the calming shades of grey, brown and then bright blue sky, and feel serene.
I missed your blog.

Winter has always been a peaceful time year of me. Have to agree with you. I love the quiet stillness of a Winter sky. The stars never shine brighter than in Winter and there is a serenity to it that brings calmness.
