A Chant I wrote eons ago for our coven’s solstice
Who will bring the sun’s light?
We will bring the sun’s light.
To tune of the round Father, I Adore you
As I walk surrounded by the chill air of December, may I feel cleansed and renewed.
May I be blessed as I walk in the clear clean light of Solstice morning
May I feel ready for new challenges as the year changes to the light from the dark.
I ask that nine signs of winter solstice protect and guide my way
Chill of wind awaken me
Morning light excite me
Honk of Canadian geese overhead inspire me
Warmth of friends bless me
Sharing of food nourish me
Love of family bless me and all who I hold dear
Sounds of singing sooth me
Long cozy nights refresh me
Candle flames enthrall me
May I be inspired to create for the enjoyment of those I love
Every day and every night
From nightfall through the breaking of dawn and all the day.
They think I’m a loon today. They keep switching from heat to AC in the building and when it switches I start sneezing until the temp or my body reaches equilibrium. This leads to sometimes 15 sneezes in a row. And it’s annoying as hell.
It’s even more annoying to know that when I go outside to get lunch it will start all over again if the temp is slow or the light is too bright. I’m not allergic to anything airborne except night-stinking jasmine so trying to explain to my co-workers that I am not sick just allergic to the temperature change makes me look like a nutjob. Luckily, sneezing is not controllable unless you have a fondness for snuff and I don’t. They’ve given up saying, “bless you”.
You think they would have gotten used to it over the summer when the AC kicked on over my desk but it seems to be a source of amusement like my random hiccups.
