I said to my soul, be still, and wait without hope
For hope would be hope for the wrong thing; wait without love,
For love would be love of the wrong thing; there is yet faith
But the faith and the love and the hope are all in the waiting.
Wait without thought, for you are not ready for thought:
So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing.
From Four Quartets by T.S. Eliot

WISE WORDS for 12/21/12:
"A piece of advice: if you want to remain in control of a doomsday cult, don't give a date for the end of the world unless you're really, really sure it's going to happen. Being wrong tends to undermine your authority."
― Jennifer Bosworth, Struck

Happy Solstice, Twilight!

“The zeal of the stupid in her, Chris began turning pages as if it were the winter solstice gift catalog, earmarking pages and cooing in delight at the new possibilities.”
― Kim Harrison, A Perfect Blood

Solstice Greeting in Irish:

Slàinte maith, h-uile latha, na chi ‘snach fhaic!

Gun cuireadh do chupa thairis le slainte agus sonas.

A h-uile là sona dhuibh ‘s gun là idir dona dhuib.


Good health, every day, whether I see you or not!
May your cup overflow with health and happiness.
May all your days be happy ones.

Thank you both! Warmest Solstice Greetings coming back atcha!

Yorkies and/or Okies don't have any special greeting, so I'll lift one from the Wiccans (hope they won't mind)

"Merry meet and merry part and merry meet again, and Blessed be."
