I want to wish everyone a joyous Yule a little early. We learned a few days ago that my wife has gall stones, so her gall bladder must come out. It is a bit complicated because she has a blood disorder. This means the simple operation cannot be done locally. We are going to the big city (Burlington, Vermont) to see a specialist and a surgeon tomorrow. We don’t know if they will do the surgery tomorrow, or Thursday… or even Friday. Hence, this early Yule post.
It is always good to be home for Yule because that is always where the hearth fire is the brightest and the warmest. This may also be due to the loved ones we surround ourselves with at this time of year. I know that, as long as I am with my dear wife, the hearth fire will be warm no matter where we are, though.I have a special wish for those who may be alone on Yule: grow the spark within! It is a good time for this for Yule is a festival of Light! Join with me in spirit in celebrating the rebirth of Light.
To all the sisters and brothers in the southern hemisphere, I wish you a joyous Mid-summer festival and frolic. However, I must ask that you send the Light back to us. It is starting to get pretty cold here.
To all, Blessed be!
