It has been a while since I last did a 'moonboard' as I call them, in fact, I started this one for November. I am happy to be back amongst the Dreamers.
This is a muddled reflection of cherished memories, meaningful symbols and wishes for the future. It also gives a hint towards the last dreamboard which said 'there's something waiting in the wings' and there was. It's only a little something at the moment but I'm going to keep dreaming on as much as I can.
Today is the shortest day of the year,
a very special day for us in the northern hemisphere,
as we are at the furthermost point of the earth's journey around the sun.
This is particularly poignant as we are experiencing severe freezing temperatures here in Britain.
No wonder the ancients had reverence for this day onward,
their gloominess having descended like the sun itself,
falling lower and lower on the horizon.
Then being replaced by elation as the sun began to climb again and recover.
No wonder they marked these days
by joyful celebrations in anticipation of increasing light and warmth!
I hadn't thought about it for
a very long time,
I'd almost forgotten!
'A Virgin A Day'
threw me back into my childhood,
I would be about five at the time
when I was chosen to be Mary
for the school Nativity Play,
it was held at our very beautiful village church.
I think they chose me for my dark, curly locks.
I do recall thinking I would
rather be an angel,
on account of their huge, gorgeous wings,
rather than Mary wearing the plain blue dress!
I was more than a little put out too
when they took
the baby Jesus doll off of me!
Knowing what I Know now, I should have
basked a little more in the
glory and privilege
of such an occasion, after all it's not
every day, and everyone who gets
to step into the shoes
of the Virgin!
