Luminescence

If only we could see the magnificence of the life force in all living things, we would not abuse any of it.

Human beings have been given gifts of energy and light to use for good and peaceful purposes, if we are aware.  Look around you and be in awe.  The world thanks you.

Mid-Winter Blahs

In colder climates, short, frigid, dark days can wear on our emotions, especially if we have not prepared ahead of time.


Some people live out winter differently, creating special traditions using food treats, festivities, etc. to deal with the doldrums.

Do you paint, compose music, write in winter???

Squirrel Antics

If squirrel catches your attention today, there is a message for you. Squirrels are practical, working diligently in fall to put away acorns and nuts.  In  winter, they  frolic from tree to tree, chasing each other on snowy days.
 
Maybe we are being shown there is a time to work and a time to play, and the balance of both makes for a happy life.

Amaryllis in Winter

This plant has rich mythological and symbolic lore conveying love, determination, beauty or pride. 

If you have been gifted or purchased a bulb for the holidays, it will repay your care and attention given with a splendid bloom on a bleak winter day.

Filling the Darkness

We fill these dark, winter days with external lights and festivities, but we also have the opportunity to find the Inner Light in others.

Powerful changes happen  when we access that source.

A Season of Hope

While we face a grueling winter of cold and extended darkness, the earth is preparing for a season of renewal and light.

The very nature of HOPE is seeing what can be.

The Woodpile by Robert Frost

Poet Robert Frost found a cord of stacked wood neatly piled in the midst of the woods. He mused over what it represented to him--order with purpose in the wildness of his surroundings.  

In our world of chaos, we must also find Sacred Order, hidden from our ordinary senses.
