Alban Arthan [Welsh] = Winter Solstice
Melt away the year’s regrets and sorrows
Through the longest night
Whilst the bright flame tempts the sun
To shine longer, stronger
With each passing day
Blessings to all my friends

Since my last upload I seem to have functioned as a ‘virus magnet’ and have lurched from one illness to another, including a rather serious bout of pleurisy. My computer has been out of action for much of the time I’ve been well and any plans to buy a new one were scuppered by the need to ‘bail out’ my youngest daughter after her partner lost his job. My Bell’s palsy went eventually – at least cosmetically, but left me with very weak eyesight. For more than three weeks I’ve been waiting for new glasses.
I’ve got them now, and I’ll be posting a few pictures up to the 17th. The ten days up to the 27th hold too many memories – the time my son was in a coma after taking a fatal overdose of my ex-wife’s medication – so I won’t be around properly until the New Year begins.

It's wonderful to see you here again; your words and images never fail to inspire and delight me. Life has a way of throwing us curves, and they never seem to just come one at a time. Be well, know we're thinking of you. I'm looking forward to lots more soon. Take care.

like teardrops the wax wains. Life love and light have always been a part of who you are dearheart your work is an extension of whats in side with the words being the music. Paths, they are there before us and we should never forget how important our steps are upon them and what we leave behind for others to follow.
Love, blessings to you my dear friend return to us when you can, we always look forward to what who you are.
