THURSDAY NIGHT

Candle flickers, day's end,
    Winter shivers, nights' friend;
         Brightness echoes heart's giving,
              Soul's quickness ever-living.

I cleanse my soul in the well of wisdom,
         protection of being,
         strength of mind,
         healing of heart,
    be the triple cleansing of wisdom.
May the blessing-drop be upon all beings,
     conferring wisdom from swift twilight
         til dawn's chill light.

The blessing of the Eagle-winged Renewer,
    the blessing of the Raven-winged Transformer,
         attend my soul this Winter's night.
             May all that burdens my being
                   be lifted as I mount on wings of
                        dreams this night.

from the Celtic Devotional by Caitlin Matthews

A peaceful night to you all.

You have some TALENT, buddy!!  It's getting very winterish here.  It doesn't inspire me to do much more than bury myself under big blankets and listen to the wind howl.

Hugs,
