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

~so here we are~

its been a strange week and a half here in my small part of the new forest.
i am so glad it is all over, it has been so stressful and full of anger~on my mums part i have to say but of course things like that spread out to those surrounding her.
its all because she cannot accept spookys new bf.
i have just been out with spooky and discussed things and i hope it helped her somewhat.
swampy and i did not make it to the new years camp...well we actually made it to within two miles of the site and broke down! so had to come home with the help of the AA (hooray for breakdown cover!), arriving home at 10.30 on tuesday night. so poor swampy has spent the last few days taking the engine and gearbox out of pippin and he has literally just found the problem is not as serious as it sounded~we were expecting at the very least a new engine or gearbox and had discussed selling him.
he has just walked in and said he has found the problem...a nut has come loose!
something so simple!
as for me, i am sitting in the warm, blogging of course! and 'hello dolly' has just come on~i love that film!
tomorrow i am really back to normal with my studies, i have less that two weeks for this part, three weeks for my other and then when i get back from new york i start my medieval history course.
and then there is the packing and exchanging money into dollars...a busy busy time...

Sounds like so much is going on in your life right now! I supposed 2009 is going to be a very productive one.

Yes, I had to leave SSS. Too much sadness there. I'm starting over again. It's hard but I feel better now.

Yes, festivities are over and it's straight into busy-ness for me too.

Hope the studies go smoothly, this time last year I had just finished my degree and I was SOOOOOO happy!

Hope things have settled down with your mum, it's never easy being caught in the middle. It's a pity you missed the camp but in these temperatures maybe not such a bad thing:) Those words 'medieval history' are so evocative, it's a period that interests me but, as ever with me, it's how people lived their daily livesnot the power and politics of history courses that is the attraction. Hope your essays are going well.

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