Just in a wierd headspace.
Observed the 5 year anniversary of my last car accident on 1/23/08.
Thought at lot about it, wanted to blog about it. Still can't really.
Winter drags on. We have about an hour more of light than we had at the Solstice.
I recently read an article about Stonehenge. All the articles I have read before have always focused on ancient people celebrated the Summer Solstice. I have always in my heart disagreed. The summer solstice is fine and all that, but the thing to really celebrate is the returning of the light. This article said that scientists are starting to think that what was really calculated and celebrated is in fact the winter solstice.
To know when the days stop getting shorter would be really important to me, to know the date when if all is going well then the days start getting longer - or to mark a time when if the days keep getting shorter that drastic goat slaying is in order to appease what ever thing you prayed to, that's what is crutial. I know as a modern person that I certainly look at the calendar and count down the days until the darkness starts to receed.
My energy has been very low so far this year. We didn't get projects finished this December that needed to be finished. So there are partial projects everywhere which drains me. It is so hard to spend 9 hours in intense studio time and then come down and work on the house. Weekends are packed for the forseeable future. I am going to try to schedule a couple of 3 day weekends so we can get a few of the projects wrapped up. I can't stand the thought of things hanging fire until next December.
Both of us haven't quite gotten over what ever cold that settled in couple of weeks ago. This one seems to be tough to shake. Yay for astragalus and aireborne!
I'll write more when I feel better. When I am less snivley.
