winterland

(viewed 1114 times)
this time of year isn't all about joy and celebration.

it's about darkness, despair, death.

Drink your last loving drop of wine
Be lost in the melting haze inside
And when you wake, well I pray you'll have come
out from the furnace and into the cold

Oh winterland, winterland won't you come, come, come
Lead us into your home
Tenderly tend to our sadness, undo our blame
And take away the pain

The winds all sing with blind delight
as long shadows beckon you in with claws
And if you shout you won't be heard
The stranglehold too strong, the force so sheer

Oh winterland, winterland your desire is inflamed
Now it's too late

Well if you want the winter you won't have long to wait
It's nearly the end of days
All the leaves have fallen from the boughs of the trees
It's starting to freeze

The earth is turned to a frozen husk
No longer a fertile soil will yield
Now hear the widows mourn from afar
Stained by salvation's bleeding heart

You search for a way out but there's no way to be found
You're in a winterland
Eternally awake in a darkness that will never end
and you'll never return

So if you want the winter you won't have long to wait
It's nearly the end of days
All the leaves have fallen from the boughs of the trees
It's starting to freeze, it's freezing

Oh how sad to know you won't be back
Oh how sad, nature has an evil plan always

Time to get the Christmas lights out

...as is tradition, lay them out on the floor and check they're working before popping them on the tree!

Merry Christmas, Moblog x

Follow your star.

"All men have the stars," he answered, "but they are not the same things for different people. For some, who are travellers, the stars are guides. For others they are no more than little lights in the sky. For others, who are scholars, they are problems. For my businessman they were wealth. But all the stars are silent. You--you alone--will have the stars as no one else has them--"

Advent in Grassington

(viewed 1456 times)
Grassington has been holding a Dickensian Christmas for 25 years now. It embodies most concepts of advent.
I chose this image because of the involvement - everyone together, but each an individual, joining in the age old tradition of carol singing, complete with torches to chase away the midwinter dark.

May you enjoy your Christmas in your own way. Savour its magic moments.
