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"

as you know i have spent the last two years working on my BA (Honours) in history with the open university and this month started my third course~exploring history: medieval to modern 1400-1900~which is turning out to be fantastic, the reading is really interesting, if france, england and burgundy in the fifteenth century is your thing!

well, i have all my future courses planned out and it will take me another 2-3 years to complete my degree and for a few weeks now i have been pondering what to do after that.

i have always wanted to be an archaeologist~since i was really tiny in fact, but now i find my thoughts turning more to research, conservation...that kind of thing and have decided that~wherever my m.e finds me in three years time~ i would like to continue my studies and do my masters in history.

i have spent some time this morning reading up on the work needed and the subjects to be covered, i am one of those people who love reading, note taking, research and essay writing so to me the thought of continuing my studies is so exciting

When I finished my education degree in 2007 I thought 'at last, it's finished'. One of my lecturers had talked to me about doing some further study in his area (religion and spirituality) because I'd done well in his courses. I thought - at the time - 'no effing way'.

However I did love those subjects and have been interested in comparative religion for years and now I sometimes find myself thinking 'hmmmm...'.

Oh and I wanted to be an archeologist too...nearly was, but in the end...wasn't.

Oh dear, since I took a blogging break I write entire posts in other people's comments. Sorry!

Good luck with it all, it took me 8years to do my BA Honours with the OU as I was working full time when I did it and various major events took place like getting married!! However, the sense of achievement when I finished was magic.
