Life, crafty stuff, long walks, thoughts, and little oddities.

January Muse


There is a curious delight

To be found

In January days

When the wind whistles round the house

Whipping the snow into a frenzy

You can stay inside

Toasting by the log fire

Watching the flakes whirl down

Or pile on hat and gloves

Pull on boots and thermals

Go out into the storm

Count snowflakes

Catch them on the palm of your hand

Stick out your tongue and hope

That one will land, ice cold,

On the tip.

Make tracks in virgin ground

Or spread-eagled angels

Build a snowman

Or hollow out a  lantern

Place a tea-light in it

And retreat inside

To admire the glow

Warming your smile

On a curiously delightful

January day.

Taking time out to ponder life and everything else. This is the space where I press the pause button on my busy life to reconnect with God, to re-energize, and focus on my creativity. Time out to blow bubbles, walk on the beach, write some stuff, do some needlework, and generally enjoy life once again. You can view my main blog at www.iggandfriends.wordpress.com. I also have another blog at www,faithinthehome.wordpress.com, and a arty/crafty one at http://52weeksofcreations.wordpress.com/. I hope you enjoy visiting :)

  1. It just so happens that we got such a snowfall last night so your muse rings right home! Nice one!

  2. Another 9 months to go (6 months before I need to start thinking about jobs). Bliss 🙂
