Peace of the season

May the quiet peace of the deep winter forest fill your heart.

May the strength of the earth beneath your feet always support you when you need it.

May the clear blue of the skies smile upon you and your loved ones in union with the earth.

May the warm fires of the winter-time warm your body and lighten your soul.

May the poetry and song of our people be your light on the long nights until the return of the sun.

From an ancient Celtic blessing I just made up.

Regardless of personal faith, persuasion or bad colour co-ordination, peace and liver abuse on you all.
