It began with a supermoon:

And then the ice dragons breathed:

And the Fire dragons blew:

And we took a walk.

The way through the woods

And into the woods I go

To lose my mind

And find my soul.

Sometimes we all need a little magic in our lives

There is an old deep magic in these woods

which has seeped into my bones.

“Any patch of sunlight in a wood will show you something about the sun which you could never get from reading books on astronomy. These pure and spontaneous pleasures are ‘patches of Godlight’ in the woods of our experience.”
C.S. Lewis

Let us take our hearts for a walk in the woods and listen to the whispers of venerable trees.

“A hundred years or more, she’s bent her crown
in storm, in sun, in moonsplashed midnight breeze.
surviving all the random vagaries
of this harsh world. A dense – twigged veil drifts down
from crown along her trunk – mourning slow wood
that rustles tattered, in a hint of wind
this January dusk, cloudy, purpling
the ground with sudden shadows.
How she broods –
you speculate – on dark surprise and loss,
alone these many years, despondent, bent,
her bolt-cracked mate transformed to splinters, moss.
Though not alone, you feel the sadness of a
twilight breeze. There’s never enough love;
the widow nods to you. Her branches moan.”
Lauren Lipton

I think I see a glimmer–

Into the woods–you have to grope,
But that’s the way you learn to cope.
Into the woods to find there’s hope
Of getting through the journey.
Into the woods, each time you go,
There’s more to learn of what you know.
Into the woods, but not too slow–
Into the woods, it’s nearing midnight–
Into the woods to mind the wolf,
To heed the witch, to honor the giant,
To mind, to heed, to find, to think, to teach, to join, to go to the Festival!
Into the woods,
Into the woods,
Into the woods,
Then out of the woods–
And happy ever after!”
Stephen Sondheim, Into the Woods

In Winter’s frozen realm

Magic is in your heart.

And stillness in your soul.

The solstice spiral
