"When the soul wishes to experience something she throws an image of the experience out before her and enters into her own image."

The Light is returning - it's Christmas - and a New Year is Arriving

'The Other Story'
(based on H.C. Andersen's 'Den Standhaftige Tinnsoldat')

This Christmas time is always a bit ambivalent for me....
It's strange - or perhaps it is not -
It IS the time Winter Solstice - the shortest day and the longest night - and the light is Returning - in this part of the planet -   
It makes me remember... a lot;
And so I feel joy with all the joyous moments I remember
And I feel melancholy with all the sad ones 
I guess I die a bit....?
- And then I feel ....ever so slowly.....anticipation....small trembles of something stirring....
Something New....something waking.....
A New Year - a New Time
And I feel Thankful for experiencing this feeling!
