Day 19

(viewed 1576 times)
*While I stand alone
A bell is ringing far away
I wonder if you hear,
I wonder if you're listening
I wonder where you are today.
Good luck! I wish you well,
and for all that wishes may be worth;
I hope that love and strength
are with you for the length
of your time on earth."

G sang this last night at a Karaoke do. He dedicated it to the same person who he always dedicates one song to. You're reading this, you know who you are....

Merry Christmas Mobloggers everywhere and Christmas wishes and gay boy kisses to Viv for organizing the calendar again this year.

Snow Flakes

(viewed 1442 times)
From Heaven I fall, though from earth I begin.
No lady alive can show such a skin.
I'm bright as an angel, and light as a feather,
But heavy and dark, when you squeeze me together.

Though candor and truth in my aspect I bear,
Yet many poor creatures I help to insnare.
Though so much of Heaven appears in my make,
The foulest impressions I easily take.

Merry Christmas to all Mobloggers. Thinking of all who may have their plans spoilt by the weather.

December 17th - Happy Solstice!

(viewed 1023 times)
It's always nice when the sky clears up and you see that the sun is still there, shining. It's good to feel the slightly warm rays of sun on your skin on a cold day. It's good to know the days will stop getting shorter and start getting longer soon, that cicle will be starting all over again.

It's good to know Christmas is coming!

A very merry Christmas and a splendid New Year to all! :)

Dec 16 - Its not perfect... But its all B-E-A-utiful!

(viewed 1578 times)
Sometimes we all forget that which is truly important… we worry about the perfect day, the perfect gift, the perfect tree… We forget to cherish the things that we do have, cherish the beauty of the imperfection that is inevitable. Believe in the magic of the Christmas season…

The line outside a retail store, people trampling each other to save on the latest electronics; let it be a cautionary reminder…

This spirit, this season, the wonder and love are all just a spark to light a fire which can warm our hearts for an entire year if we let it.


Lil early... but 16th turned very busy very quackly... ;) Merry Christmas Everyone!

15th Dec - The best Christmas of all...

(viewed 924 times)
“The best Christmas of all is the presence of a happy family all wrapped up with one another.”

I can’t wait to be home for Christmas. Sitting in the lounge with the fire raging, cat on the lap, nibbling one of Mum’s homemade mince pies and the rest of the family as company. That’ll be me in a week.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all from Rhys.

Merry Christmas!

The way a crow
Shook down on me
The dust of snow
From a hemlock tree

Has given my heart
A change of mood
And saved some part
Of a day I had rued.


Robert Frost 'A Dust of Snow'

Had more than a dust of snow recently - but all adds to the Christmas spirit! Have a good one everybody. :)
