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


good grief its been ages since i posted here!

i had a week where i stayed away from the Internet-busy reading, working on my crochet, pottering in the garden.

then the week before last i started to be bothered by a niggly cough which by the friday had become much worse and i was feeling rough...well rougher than usual and i assumed i was under the unwelcome spell of a cold, my second this year.

however the 'cold' part never materialised~i was just coughing, coughing, coughing and it was getting worse day by day.

by last thursday i realised it wasn't a cold and so tried to get a doctors appointment...no such luck.

the next day i managed to get a 'triage' appointment-which is where the doctor telephones to discuss your problem and see if you really do need to be seen.
well seconds after listening to me croaking and uncontrollably coughing down the phone he said he wanted to see me straight away and once at the surgery i went straight in to the doctor.

turns out i have a really bad virus and have been taking a high dose of antibiotics since...today is the last day i have to take them and yet not convinced they are really working. i shall give it few more days then talk to the doctor again.

well that's all from me today~more tomorrow!

Hope you feel better soon - the weather can't be helping much!

OH NO!! I was wondering where you had been... definitely do a follow up on that cough with the doctor....It almost sounds like the croup from what you describe...add some lemon to the tea...it may help...
Take care Hon...

Awww, sorry to hear this Laoi :(

Do get back to your Dr. if you think it's not improving . . . hoping that it is though! {{H}}

Poor you!
Hot Honey and lemon with a sprig of fresh thyme in and strain before drinking, otherwise the tiny thyme leave will make you cough even more!
I do hope you feel better soon.

Bright blessings,
