And with that, after Obama finishes

He not only said all the right things; he's delivered. He got the job done. I'm grinning ear to ear!

I'd grown wary of President Obama, but I'm in love with him all over again. A less starry-eyed love, perhaps, but I think he's great.

Mmm. That sounds delicious, Jenett. I'm definitely going to have to try that. Actually I was going to message you to ask how much of the spices you put into your winterspice loaves. Now I guess I don't have too! Cheesy

*grin* Glad to help.

I woke up this morning from a very potent dream related to some of the ritual work we did last night - a commentary on the difference between 'fault' and 'responsibility', especially when it comes to moving on from stuff that didn't come out as I'd hoped. I suspect I'll be continuing to mull over it for quite a while.

So if you’re trying to stay up till dawn, or just want to pop in to converse with those of us who are, this is the place! (Or if you're lucky enough to be in the Southern Hemisphere, enjoying the warmth and sun of summer solstice, tell us what we're missing!)

[In the last line, swap in the word “vigil” for “revels” if the feeling is more contemplative than festive]

I don't often post but I am in here reading a lot. I did not make it up all night I had a nap from 2am to 5am local time. I went out about 20 min ago to relight my candle, make an offering. It is beautiful.

The air is crisp and cold so that breath shows as mist, high clouds flit across a full moon lighting the night. The grass and trees damp from a nights rain, everything fresh and clean. The sun just starting to peek above the curve of the earth. Trees stand dark and silent blacker than the sky. Lighting my candle in the dark, a sudden burst of bright light in the stillness. Beautiful.

Now, I sit and wait for the sun to rise fully. Then it will be off to bed.

Oh goodness. Final stretch, I decided to take aquick little moment to think...I totally fell asleep. Oh well I supose. I woke up to see the clouded sky relitivly lit...not much to see in the rapidly falling rain and the thick blanket of fog and clouds. Sad, but still a pretty sight, even though it wasnt what I expected. Now...I am going to light a few candels, say a prayer...and be back in bed before my eyes shut for good. Goddess Bless all who are still waiting for the sun!  Cheesy

I didn't make it all the way through the night, but I woke up in time to see the sunrise! Well, what little I could of it. We're in suburbia (oh, Delta) and I snapped pictures from between houses.


Now I am sitting here waiting for my boyfriend to come home. He is late. I hope this is because he has picked up coffee for me.

I, on the other hand, woke up at midday. Cheesy

Lovely photos, Morag! Smiley

Thank you! My camera isn't the best, but I do what I can whilst I wait for a new one. Smiley


And the fact that I didn't sleep till midday is a testament to how awesome my boyfriend's bed is. I actually get a good rest on it so I can sleep for shorter periods of time. (Also, I wanted to be awake for when he got home. And he's on his way now with hot chocolate for me. Grin)

Hey, what is this thread?

I just wanted to say I hope everyone had a great solstice, and to thank everyone who participated in this thread, whether you went the distance and stayed up all night or just stopped in for a while/cheered the up-all-nighters on. I thought the postings this year were the richest yet, with wonderful recipes, photos, experiences, poems (with all those great contributions, I sense a possible non-theme for next year!), and insights.

Most of all, thanks to Randall and Lyric for once again providing a forum for us to pass the long night.

Obviously you missed my off-color ramblings.  Wink  Thanks to everyone who dared endure them.

Believe me when I say that then off-color ramblings in chat were what got me through the last couple of hours.  So thanks to everyone who was in there with me.
