“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.”
The Winter will be here soon, short grey days with the sun low in the sky. This is the time to take stock, to sort and to make plans. I find these days difficult, the cold makes my muscles ache and it is difficult to keep warm. The temptation is to sit curled up in a blanket with a good book and a hot drink. But this winter I am determined not to hibernate
Friday Find this week is the wonderful Somerset Levels, a flat endless expanse of wetlands once covered by sea, It is full of wading birds, often floods, and is impassable. But on a cold frosty morning it is magical and with Glastonbury Tor on it’s hill in the distance rising often out of a low lying mist, is one of the most inspiring sights. No wonder many people find it mystical.
Glastonbury has become a mecca for seekers of the mystical, shops are full of crystals, healers and wonderful music. One of my favourite musicians is Loreena McKennit listen to her HERE.
We came across this musician who was singing a song set to the words of Kipling, called the Tree Song.
“Of all the trees that grow so fair,
Old England is adorn,
Greater are none beneath the sun,
Than Oak, and Ash and Thorn.
Sing Oak and Ash and Thorn good sirs.
Surely we sing no such thing,
In Oak, and Ash, and Thorn.
To finish, as some of my online friends know I am a tremendous Bellowhead fan check out this
YouTube video of Bellowhead on the BBC doing a music hall type Christmas it’s fab….
Have a wonderful weekend…
