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"

Hopi Prophecy

~in the words of homer simpson-DOH!~

here i am, victim of my m.e addled, highly forgetful brain~the diabetic eye screening and sight test i had down for 16th may is in fact 16th april~thank goodness they actually phone people up to remind them!
i presently wear a pair of delightfully nerdy glasses~you know the kind of thing from the nhs years ago that everyone hated?! maybe if i need a different prescription i can find some other nerdy style ones? who knows.

not only that but we have to get pippin to bridport for his yearly screening (MOT!) in the afternoon~and wednesday is shopping day so i guess tomorrow will be busy. in fact we will have to take cody with us as it will be more than silly to drive to my appointment, come home and then drive back to bridport.

so i think i will suggest a long lunch at west bay

still all is not lost because the 16th of april is our yearly h-van camp (check here to see our little site by our friend andy~if you search the 60th anniversary gallery carefully you will see an actual picture of yours truly~a rarity indeed!) and now that means we can go straight to the camp!

~all's well that ends well!~

hope that you have a good day tomorrow...if busy.
I'm at the dentist with my daugter she has to have two more milk teeth out because she is getting a double set of teeth because they just wont fall out and her big teeth are now growing!
Take care,

I spotted you, but still can't see you properly with your hat on! lol

*How do you link words to links. I cant work out how to do it*.

pixiedust to link words you copy the link then highlight the word you want to link and then in the text box click on the little symbol that looks like a chain link~you then cut and paste the web link in the box and ok it...does this make sense?!

hope so!

Sounds like a busy day you are having today. Hope you come home safely. Oh and I think I found you in the gallery!

All things share the same breath~the beast, the tree, the man, the air shares its spirit with all the life it supports.
