Solstice




Enjoy this blessed solstice, and the grand and simple rhyme of the turning seasons!






Winter falls like a hammer of night
On the earth - thick anvil of frost
But we strive here beside the ember glow
With the pines yet green beneath the snow; 
And under the blue ice lie the seeds
Of meadows for the honeybee;

The wind will turn the wheel of sky
On which the cold steel Valkyries ride
Clearing the morn for the white sun
And take us to Valhalla once again
Where the little berries ripen red
And the hills are softly burned green

 - T. Powell

I am not sure how to contact you except by posting here. We are a family at Glenridge Co-op in Glen Canyon & our beloved fairy house next to the school has fallen & broken in places. I'm not sure if the recent winds did it or if someone pulled the tree down. Will you consider repairing it? The children love those fairy houses & they are part of the spirit of the canyon! Thank you for creating them & please consider restoring them so the fairies still have a nice home to live in!
