I’m tired.

‘Weary’, is a word I’m using far too often these days. It has crept way down deep in my bones.

Like Bilbo I feel as though I’ve been spread too thin for far too long.

This year’s been a bit taxing, folks.

Nothing that lots, and lots and lots, of rest won’t heal, I’m sure.


May you score lots of loot in ten days time. (if you’re into that celebration)

May the Birth of the New Year in five days time, bring you the double blessing of the release of the old and the renewal of all the good things that warm your heart. (if you’re into that celebration too)

On that note, I bid you adieu for the remainder of this year, and leave you with a piece of music, the second half of which never fails to send me into a most peaceful sleep, wherein perchance I dream …

    I enjoy a good solstice. The chanting, the nudity, the wild and kinky sex, the roaring bonfire. We’re not being allowed to hold it in the office this year though, so it will have to be in a local pub instead.

  2. We are so tired it just isn’t funny anymore. Looking forward to the New Year, with less freezing weather and health problems… We appreciated that lovely video, Widds, so very peaceful…

    The solstice is one of those points in the year when the heavenly cycle is poised, waiting for the pendulum to swing once more, an ideal time to take a breath before the swoop of life begins again.
    Wishing you a peaceful festive break and the space for calm, and a hope that the new year brings you rebirth.
    Blessed be.

    Enjoy a great and restorative Winter’s rest. May growing sunlight and Spring’s rebirth also rekindle your energy and send your spirit soaring.

    No stopping…but maybe a little slowing down? A little kick back, rest? And then onward…

    These have been three of the longest years of my life, so I too feel that weariness.
    We all need a fresh start and some good news for a change. I guess we all need hope for the future.
    Thanks for the music. So long as homo sapiens can create such beauty there is hope for us all.
    Hugs to you and Mrs Widds. Hang in there my friend.

    Hi Widds, I popped into WP for the first time in weeks and saw this post. I get it about being tired. I am utterly exhausted too (part of the reason I’m not blogging) and most people I know are feeling worn out too. I think we all need down time to process the last few years and catch our breath before 2023. I hope you have a good rest over the holidays.

    It hurts my heart to hear you are so weary. I know you’ve been in pain, and that can really take it out of a person. Your summer adventures of fun and travel, while amazing, are also not easy. I wish you lots of rest, and the very best for 2023. Hugs from Alberta, Alisen
