Well, so much blogging on a regular basis! Working nightshift on the psychiatric ward with 17-19 patients along with the cold weather has left little time to jot even a few words.
It's about 11:15AM on Saturday, the 20th December (Solstice Eve) and although the Sun is shining brilliantly, the temperature outdoors is a chilly 1 degree F. (I know, I was just out to mail my sister and my niece a Christmas card and so glad to be back in).
We have predictions of a major snow storm to blow in this evening with high winds and up to 6 or 7 inches of snow. I plan to make to work at the hospital (four nights to go), but don't know if I will be coming home in the morning or staying over somewhere.
However, it's one way to welcome in the Solstice, and if I have time I want to post the lovely poem by Susan Cooper entitled " The Shortest Day". If I fail to do so--go and look it up (easily available on the web) and see if you get goosebumps and shivers once you have read it. And read it out loud--much better that way.
And I note that I have a following...thank you for your kindness Tricia, I did not expect to have any following, and not so soon. And please bear with me as I find my way in blogging and in being a wee bit more regular in posting.
If for some reason I do not post for a bit, I wish one and all a Blessed Yule, a Merry Christmas and a renewing Solstice.
