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"

~*this blogging life*~

looking at leanne's post made me think about my own blogging path, so of course it made me wonder how long i have been blogging~leading me to think how much my blogging has actually changed.

i started blogging on 26th june 2007 and i really have no idea what pushed me in this direction, it just must have seemed fun at the time~and it has been, it still is.

i looked over some of my early posts and they now seem very...'new girl on the block', maybe i was conscious of the fact that maybe someone out there would read it~you know the feeling, like being the new girl in class, wanting to make friends.
as time went on, my writing changed and i became less inclined to write what i thought people might want to hear and just wrote what came out of my head as i sat in front of the screen and i still do~i must write things that interest people as i have you all come back for more.
one thing i have always done is change the look of my blog, and as you can see i have been at it again today~i guess its like decorating my little cyber room, it keeps it interesting for all of us.

i sort of wonder~what did we all do before blogging? i am not a great fan of technology but oh how i have embraced blogging~i have met and made some lovely, dear friends through it and gained an insight into living in different countries across the world and its wonderful.

~~on an entirely different track, i have gone all day, the first since last tuesday, without falling asleep throughout the day~~

Just popping in to say hello...like the new look, very calm and gentle.
Hope you are fully recovered and the full moon has assisted.
Blogging...well, seemed like a way for an amateur to practise a bit of writing and as it says in "The Artist's Way" just write.I now maintain 4 blogs ` one for the humour,one for the more serious concerns, one for an organisation I help run and the other about the serious issues surrounding adoption which I hope will give pause for thought or be helpful to anyone who chances to stop by.I've enjoyed it,worked through the addictive phase and see it as an essential communication tool.It's also another fun outlet for my photographs and those of others, as I'm a dedicated Flickr member.
Keep well!

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