It is snowing here at Wolfdancer Creek, adding to the 3 week pack, and snowed-in feeling of both isolation, and insulation. I find myself alone for the second Christmas in a row. Last year, it was because I simply could not face anyone, I knew I'd shatter if anyone gave me a sideways glance of sympathy. This year, well, it's alot like that, only different. I know I won't shatter. This year, I am taking this aloneness and embracing it.
Yes, I am lonely. Yes, if I think about it, I could cry. But no, I won't be spending much time thinking about loneliness. I am thinking about Lessons, I am thinking about Christmas, I am thinking about what it means, this season of giving.. I am hibernating, I am replenishing my spirit. I am embracing Bear Medicine.
I gave all the Song Dogs elk bones for Christmas, and the kitties all got a can of cat food. The ducks are fed, the goats got apple snax, and some Christmas hugs.
So from Wolfdancer Creek, I wish you all a VERY Merry Christmas and a most Blessed New Year. May he Peace of the Season follow us all, every one, throughout all the days of this coming New Year. Filled with Hope, I send my Love. Merry Christmas.
