Letting go of the old, creating space for the new-Happy Winter Solstice!

2010 December 21
by admin

Today we put the paddle boat away in the barn, reluctantly letting go of the warmer weather, and beginning to prepare the property for the winter. Each year, this ritual of letting go of the old season, and creating space for the new to settle in is bittersweet, yet expectant. When we created the space for the paddle boat, we discovered where our hens have been laying- 101 eggs were nestled up in the loft!dsc_0048 The hens had been hoarding their sweet fresh eggs, and as we cleared the space and filled our baskets, I could not help thinking that the resilient hens, discovering their nest disturbed would find a new space to lay the perfect eggs they give to us.
As we move through the Winter Solstice today, think of what spaces, internal and external, you can clear out to create room for the new things that are just waiting to delight and fill your life. You may have to find that space in an entirely new area- do not be afraid to do it!
I offer you this poem by Rumi-

If you pass your night
and merge it with dawn
for the sake of heart
what do you think will happen

if the entire world
is covered with the blossoms
you have labored to plant
what do you think will happen

if the elixir of life
that has been hidden in the dark
fills the desert and towns
what do you think will happen

if because of
your generosity and love
a few humans find their lives
what do you think will happen

if you pour an entire jar
filled with joyous wine
on the head of those already drunk
what do you think will happen

go my friend
bestow your love
even on your enemies
if you touch their hearts
what do you think will happen

    I have mastered some new elements from your web page about computer systems. Another thing I’ve always assumed is that laptop computers have become a specific thing that each family must have for some reasons. They supply you with convenient ways in which to organize the home, pay bills, go shopping, study, hear music and also watch shows. An innovative way to complete these tasks is with a laptop. These computer systems are mobile, small, powerful and transportable.

    I’ve learned result-oriented things as a result of your web site. One other thing I’d prefer to say is the fact that newer laptop or computer os’s often allow a lot more memory to get used, but they also demand more storage simply to perform. If an individual’s computer could not handle additional memory along with the newest software package requires that memory increase, it usually is the time to shop for a new PC. Thanks

    Thanks for enabling me to attain new strategies about desktops. I also have belief that certain of the best ways to keep your mobile computer in excellent condition is with a hard plastic material case, or even shell, that suits over the top of the computer. A lot of these protective gear are generally model unique since they are made to fit perfectly over the natural covering. You can buy these directly from the owner, or from third party places if they are for your laptop, however only a few laptop will have a cover on the market. Once again, thanks for your guidelines.

    Thanks for the suggestions you have discussed here. Another thing I would like to convey is that laptop memory demands generally rise along with other breakthroughs in the engineering. For instance, whenever new generations of cpus are made in the market, there’s usually a related increase in the dimensions demands of both computer memory plus hard drive space. This is because software program operated by means of these processors will inevitably boost in power to take advantage of the new technology.

    I’ve learned new things by your weblog. One other thing I would really like to say is that often newer computer operating systems are inclined to allow far more memory to be played with, but they as well demand more ram simply to function. If someone’s computer is unable to handle extra memory as well as newest application requires that memory increase, it is usually the time to buy a new PC. Thanks

    One thing I want to say is before obtaining more laptop or computer memory, look into the machine into which it could well be installed. Should the machine can be running Windows XP, for instance, a memory limit is 3.25GB. Installing over this would basically constitute a new waste. Make certain that one’s mother board can handle your upgrade volume, as well. Interesting blog post.
