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


i was brought up in a house where the only sport watched was rugby and tennis so you can imagine the excitement in getting tickets for the men's semi-finals on friday...all the more special as it will be our~that is me, of course and sam my sister~ first ever time there and the weather report is good.
i have just checked the centre court seating plan from the number on our tickets and found that we will have a pretty good view of the court.

our hotel is in kensington and chelsea so we will be able to do the tourist thing as we will have a half day to explore. one destination only a ten minute walk is kensington gardens and palace where i hope to find the wonderful bronze statue of peter pan...

portobello road and notting hill are close by and harrods is just around the corner, although i dont imagine we could afford anything there~we are going however as my sister, sam, loves the food hall ...

can you believe this!

Harrods does sell some cheaper items, even its in souvenir shops. The Peter Pan statue was a let down for me, when I first saw it, as it had taken on myth status for me when I was back in Oz, probably because of a movie I once saw.

I used to live close by to Portobello and Notting Hill, and it changed whilst I was there. I used to go into Marnie's Cafe (right at the east end of the road) and have lamingtons (like they make back in Oz). Its the only place in London I used to know that sold those cakes.

Enjoy your stay.

The food hall is great.

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