Warmest Wishes In The Coldest Season

At Christmas I No More Desire A Rose
Than Wish a Snow In May's New-Fangled Mirth
But Like of Each Thing That In Season Grows

-William Shakespeare    Love's Labour's Lost

Tay has always believed that Persephone fell in love with Pluto and Winter, and that she looks forward to those dark, fallow months when the spirit can cuddle up in the dark and regroup before that burst of spring energy. Because memory can give us the gift of roses in winter, snowfall in summer, and those we love forever close to our hearts, we never need to miss them. We carry the past and the future within us- so let's share a pomegranite and celebrate the beauty of the now.

At this holiday time, we wish you all the Joy and Light of the season, every season in turn. Whether you are into hibernation or celebration, in your heart, as in the heart of the wheat, enjoy the fruitfulness of the past and nurture the kernel that is the promise of the future.

May your Dreams be as Bright as the Northern Lights and your Hearts as Warm as Live Arctic Fur. We wish you the Brightest of New Years - Safe Haven, Snug Harbour and Always the Welcome of a Loving Heart.

As winter dances over the land, remember that you always have a warm, safe nest in our hearts.
