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 1472 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.

Chasing away the dark

(viewed 1934 times)
Long before Christmas was celebrated we marked midwinter festivals such as Yule and the feast of Mithras by lighting fires and candles to chase away the dark. It's a fundamental part of us, raising our spirits at the darkest time of the year. So as you switch on the Christmas lights this year you'll be continuing a tradition that goes back many thousands of years. How cool is that?

Merry Christmas.

May warmth be around the corner for you

(viewed 1330 times)
The solstice is almost upon us. Most of the northern hemisphere has already seen the earliest sunset, and soon the days will start becoming longer again. It's definitely time to gather and treasure those you love, and appreciate their presence in your life.

May the warmth of love and good cheer be within sight of all of you. Merry Christmas, and best of the season.


(I asked for today because Christmas was supposed to come a bit early in Antarctica, with the ship arriving at our base for the first time since we left in April. As it turns out, the ship has been delayed and won't arrive until Sunday. Oh well - best laid plans.)
