21st December

This is the end
Beautiful friend
This is the end
My only friend, the end
Of our elaborate plans, the end
Of everything that stands, the end
No safety or surprise, the end
I’ll never look into your eyes…again

Stonehenge winter solstice

Join together ‘neath the mistletoe
By the holy oak whereon it grows
Seven druids dance in seven time
Sing the song the bells call, loudly chiming

Ring out these bells
Ring out, ring solstice bells
Ring solstice bells

winter solstice

It’s the end of the world as we know it
It’s the end of the world as we know it
It’s the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine

Snow and ice have cooled our minds
Cold winds have blown away our fertile thoughts
Silent nights have stilled our tongues
Like the bear, the fox, and the toad
Our creativity hibernates without the warmth of the sun.
Come to us now, Inspiration, as the sun returns!
As the sun grows in strength
So may the fire in our hearts!

So today is either the end of the world or the start of a new age. The new year is coming the nights will start to get light as the sun returns. Let us hope for peace and happiness in the days ahead.

Today is my 6th wedding anniversary which falls each year on the Winter Solstice even though we married at the Summer Solstice. We meant to go back last year but with the current world situation we couldn’t afford to do it so we now hope to celebrate our 10th anniversary on the Summer Solstice in a land far away.
