Week of December 9, 2014 - Winter Air

Tuesday, December 09, 2014 5:05 PM | Anonymous

The moon is waning, its fullness giving way to darkness. It is the beginning of December, nights are still lengthening here in the Northern Hemisphere as we approach winter solstice, the longest night.

It is time to go back to our roots, to get into our roots, to dig deeply into our selves. In areas not yet covered with snow, these are the last days to dig roots, before the ground freezes solid. And the last chances of the year to make wild salads, too. So follow me and let’s see what there is to eat outside. Our weed walk commences here.

It is time to snuggle in and put down the electronic device and read a book or a magazine. In addition to books, I read lots of periodicals.  Since our work weekend Saturday was windy and rainy, we chose to stay inside, telling stories and cutting the year’s harvest of dried stinging nettle into small pieces ready for making infusion. After lunch, we looked at periodicals focused on herbs. And I have listed them for you in a special supplement.

There is a special openness to the winter air. A special clarity to winter sounds. And a special joy in the green blessings of winter.
