The Flame Haired Solstice Dreamer

Cold winter brings the Everfrost and jewels every tree
In a forest new as birth and old as old can be
A flame~haired dreamer wanders there and shelters from the wind
And spins her dreams around the trees to break the ties that bind
She takes her thread and spins anew and how the Greenwood smiles
As she spins a spell for freedom and for her spirit Wylde

The dreamer finds an ancient oak and shelters in his lee
In a forest new as birth and old as old can be
Tis summer now and birdsong weaves its magick through her spells
And humming bees drum drowsily in the foxglove's bells
The dreamer sits beneath the oak with yarn upon her knee
And spins and knits and weaves her dreams and sets her spirit free

"When birds fall from the sky and the animals are dying, a new tribe of people...shall come unto the earth from many colors, classes, creeds, who by their actions and deeds shall make the earth green again. they will be known as the warriors of the Rainbow"

wednesday 2nd august...rain,rain and more rain

merry meet )o(
woke up to heavy rain today. looking out of the window the lane looks like a stream. Luckily swampy chopped the logs for the rayburn before it started so i imagine its going to be quieter than usual here...swampy is watching baseball that he recorded in the early hours.
i am feeling quite rough today, still totally deaf in my left ear and with only two codeine left and about two days of antibiotics...i have to say i did end up taking two more codeine last night and the nagging migraine went away. i wonder if my doctor will prescribe them for my migraines or is that a dodgy road to be taking?
my M.E is particularly noticeable today, possibly because i went into dorchester yesterday and maybe the weather is affecting it as well as the ear infection. feel so exhausted,achey and lethargic, as if i could sleep all day. i feel as if i have no power and its taking all my energy to do this. so why do you ask am i still sitting here and writing? if i didnt i would go raving mad with boredom...M.E makes my mind like mush but it doesnt stop it becoming bored!
i have signed on to do an open university course, i have done several in the past ending with a certificate in social care which was relevant to my old job and my aim was to continue with the OU until I had a degree in social sciences. my illness has changed that as i dont know when i will be able to return to work and whether my brain will ever be up to speed enough to work with homeless addicts and ex-offenders again.
also my interests have changed so much and now i am taking the environmental route and have registered for an environmental science course, 'technology for a sustainable future' with the hope of continuing on to an environmental science degree...however it all hinges on whether i get the funding. no funding no course. if you could keep your fingers crossed and send some positive vibes my way it would be very much appreciated :)

Leanne has pointed out my not so deliberate mistake...it is thursday today 'blush' thanks Leanne and for the healing vibes tooxxx

sorry you are still feeling rough, sending healing vibes yuor way.

I can remember when my children were babies and how they used to scream with earache, it would make them really poorly. It wasnt until I got an ear infection as an adult I realised just how painful it was,a nd why thye had cried as muchas they did, poor little things. So you have my sympathy and my healing energies directed at you!

I can tell that yuo rae feeling rough- its not wednesday, its thursday today!
