Christmas Eve


"Somewhere across the winter world tonight 
you will be hearing chimes that fill the air;
Christmas extends its all-enfolding light
Across the distance....something we can share.
You will be singing, just the same as I,
These familiar songs we know so well.
I shall remember you and trim my tree,
One shining star upon the topmost bough;
I will hang wreaths of faith that all may see--
Tonight I glimpse beyond the here and now.
And all the time that we must be apart
I keep a candle in my heart."

Candle-lit heart by M.E. Linton

                                    A light in the darkness

Cold Moon Eclipse in Gemini

The Cold Moon


"This is the month when the winter cold fastens its grip and the nights become long and dark. This full moon is also called the Long Nights Moon by some Native American tribes".


From The Farmers Almanac





                                          Eclipse in Gemini


"Balthomos felt the death of Baruch the moment it happened. He cried aloud and soared into the night air over the tundra, flailing his wings and sobbing his anguish into the clouds." 

"Lovers really do feel things like this, even when they are far apart. So do identical twins. That makes sense, because identical twins start their lives as a single egg cell which splits in two. You can't get much more entangled than that! Science can't yet explain what is going on when lovers and twins know things about their partners even when the partners are far away. It still seems like magic to us, just like the way the planets move round the Sun seemed like magic hundreds of years ago. But it might have something to do with quantum entanglement".
