‘Tween Times

What a luvverly break that was. The only writing I did was to comment on blogs.

Winter Solstice – food for the Spirit. Releasing the energy of the old Year to make way for all sorts of adventures in the New. Our celebration turned out to be a bit discombobulated this year because of our party preparations, but a very Sacred time none-the-less.

 Christmas – food for the tummy, (lots of food for the tummy, perhaps a tad too much food for the tummy) and all our Widder family gathered here for the first time. Our tiny house on Widder Lake had rellies (Aussie slang for ‘relatives’) up to the lintels.

I scored some great loot – a couple of outside building projects for Spring, wool, a bit of bling for the tree, weights so I can still work out even when my knees crap out on me, $$ towards a TV (we’re tired of watching DVD’s on my 17” computer screen so we’re going to take the plunge and buy one – P.S. – we ended up buying a bigger computer monitor – much better choice!)

The calendar New Year –  is just over the horizon, but not here yet. These days between Solstice/Christmas and the new year are somewhat akin to a time out of Time, a transition from one Path that had finished it’s cycle, to another, that isn’t quite ready to manifest in this Reality.

Happy New Year everyone.

  1. They really are such lazy days. Even when I’m working before New Year’s, it always feels like I’m not doing anything.

      And I’d love to say we had a White Christmas, but I don’t think the 427 snowflakes that fell as we were unwrapping the presents, quite make the grade!


  3. I wonder if there’s a transcript of Cleese’s talk. Must go look. I’ve listened to almost 5 minutes of it, and liked what he had said thus far. My attention span, however, doesn’t work as well as it used to. “Creativity is not a talent.” That, I find reassuring…..Thanks, Widdershins, for posting the video.

    Cheers to a new year of adventure wandering around the sun!

      I find videos like this one a bit of a drag on my attention span too. I try to have something to do with my hands … erm … handy. I was knitting the first time I watched the video … worked wonders.

      I think it’s going to be a bit of an exciting sun wander this year!

    I’m glad you had a wonder Christmas! I hope you’ll be able to get your TV soon 🙂

    P.S. I enjoyed learning the two new words. Have a safe and happy New Year!


  5. Thanks for posting that John Cleese video! I got so caught up in it when I watched it a couple of days ago that I forgot to post to your blog. *g*

    Happy new year, Widdershins!
