Winter solstice,

mist cloaked,

evokes kisses.

A message from my friend Amin and his cronies in Toronto, particularly for those with December birthdays:

>>chuckle<<  Fun to have a production studio, eh?  He obviously has time on his hands  now that Flashpoint has wrapped… 😉  This is quite the step up from the cassette tapes he used to make us for birthdays!

Finally the days

are growing longer again

inching to summer.


standing stones at the solstice… December 21, 2011

I’m spending a lot of time the last couple of months reading Diana Gabaldon novels. The Outlander series is about standing stones, and the opportunity to time travel on the sun and fire feasts of assorted solstices. When I realised the day, I posted this on the Diana Gabaldon Facebook site, but I thought I’d share it with you as well.

On this Winter Solstice Day, may the stones guarding your reality open to your dreams…

What are your dreams?

What is standing in the way of achieving them? If your desires are attainable, just as a little more light is added to each day from today onward to summer, take a few moments daily to take steps to fulfilling those dreams. Write a few words, learn a few things, work out a few minutes. Each small step leads closer to reality. Then the stones of your reality won’t be blocking you, they will be the doors to your destiny.
