A rather full start to the year.  Lots of good stuff, and I’ll be reporting and reflecting as I get time.

Today, the first chance to be out walked.  13 miles over the Cotswold escarpment.  Midwinter mirk lifting to sun at the end.  Walking into health.

‘But that wasn’t the way it worked.  At one time, a mysterious road, leading beyond the known land, might have been a strong myth image; over the centuries it degenerated, but I remember my grandparents talking about ‘fairy tracks’ that could only be seen on certain nights.’

There is a very meditation by John O’Donohue For One Who is Exhausted a Blessing on the On Being Blog here.

Worth reading and listening to in these over-full days.

May God bless you this Christmas

You have traveled too fast over false ground;
Now your soul has come to take you back.
