I wanted to point out commodorified's wonderful Litany For A Season of Night and Storm.
How can it be a whole month since I have posted here?
The solstice has come. The season has turned. We escaped an ice storm by sheer blind luck and that isn't sleet in the air, it's Christmas.
Under the influence of my friends, I spent an hour or two last night watching cat videos on YouTube on my television - after spending a good part of the morning watching Michael Wood's show about Alfred the Great and petting maaseru's lovely white cat, whom I call the Little Princess. But her name is really Minou.
