from a wild and wet dorset.
so the post yule family gathering is over and here in dorset it is time to get back to normality, or as normal as our life here in the wilds can be when the main event is to walk across fields and among the hedgerow and fetch in wood for the rayburn and enjoy the warmth of a fire.
of course my other normality these days is my degree. my second marked essay came back and i scored another C, only two marks away from a B!
now i am spending the next few days reading through and amending my essay on the French Revolution and at the same time continue my reading on art history and philosophy based around the works of Rousseau...due in by the 25th so a lot of hard work is due in the coming weeks.
as you know in the few months before yule i was at a bit of a crossroads and allowing other things to take my attention and i have resolved to devote time each day to the spiritual side of my life~even if it is only a small thing such as meditation on an a ogham card or divination or journaling.
i have been putting thoughts to developing my spiritual garden in the spring, i had a book by Glennie Kindred from my mum 'Sacred Celebrations' (her 'Earth wisdom' and 'Herbal Healers' are very good) and it has given me ideas for both my front garden and back yard.
well my friends, time to get my books out for a few hours and enjoy a cup of new tea i bought today~white tea with pomegranate~highly recommended
