Wordsmithing Magic from the Crossroads

Happy Christmas to All

Watercolor Christmas candle with holiday decor. Hand painted floral composition with eucalyptus leaves, bells, pine cones and berries isolated on white background. Botanical illustration for design.

Peace On Earth, Good Will to All.
No Exceptions.

If you haven’t already, it’s time to light your final Advent candle.

Thank you to all who joined us this year to make the 19th Anniversary of our Sun Wheel ceremony the biggest and best yet.

May all your days be merry and bright.

ps: The Card of the Week will be back the 1st of January. Taking my own advice and observing the Halcyon Days this week. Thanks.

Amazing Peace
by Maya Angelou

Thunder rumbles in the mountain passes
And lightning rattles the eaves of our houses.
Flood waters await us in our avenues.
Snow falls upon snow, falls upon snow to avalanche
Over unprotected villages.
The sky slips low and grey and threatening.
We question ourselves.
What have we done to so affront nature?

Into this climate of fear and apprehension, Christmas enters,
Streaming lights of joy, ringing bells of hope
And singing carols of forgiveness high up in the bright air.
The world is encouraged to come away from rancor,
Come the way of friendship.

It is the Glad Season.
Thunder ebbs to silence and lightning sleeps quietly in the corner.
Flood waters recede into memory.
Snow becomes a yielding cushion to aid us
As we make our way to higher ground.

Dear Beth and one and all. Happy Christmas from North Texas. Thanks ever so much for guiding us through and helping us remember the meanings of this sacred time. I’m sure nature watches us 2-legged make ritual meanings throughout the year. I wonder if they are curious. With gratitude for your loving kindness.
