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"

~the dreaded lurgy~

this will be short and sweet for i came down with the dreaded lurgy on thursday and been in bed ever since.

i have not felt this poorly since i had swine flu a few years ago.

my do i feel dreadful

i got up this morning, as swampy was out walking flynt, to make myself a drink...when i managed this without coughing up a lung i was fairly optimistic that i was feeling better...better enough to have some time on the laptop, even if it is in bed.

well, no i am not really...i have a headache with it which is bringing me down.

so i thought i would pop by and say a big hello


one thing i did do was delete my OU shortcuts from my desk top and presently waiting the delivery of a fresh batch of assorted size felting needles.
before the lurgy hit i took out a fresh, large notebook and sketched and made notes for all my ideas for *alittleeclectic*

oh but i am so keen to get well and start work!

i have to say since i made my decision i have felt amazingly liberated...i no longer wake in the night and worry about getting reading done, notes written, essays planned and written.

it feels so good!

Sorry you feel so rough! Glad letting go of your studies feels good,,,,

Hope you feel better very soon so that you can get on with all your new craft projects. My DIL has just started needle felting too and is quite keen - though she is learning it so that she can teach the two boys how to do it. She's very keen on them learning to make things. Get well soon.

Sorry you're feeling poorly, do take care & rest!!

Amazing how coming to a final decision can put a mind to rest so ..... and how freeing little things, like deleting your OU links can be.

*H* ~ hope that your feeling better soon.
