I read this
brilliant book recently about a young girl growing up in a fundamentalist family. It really resonated for a few reasons. I can still remember growing up in the 80’s when there were so many ‘doomsday’ threats and it genuinely felt that we could be in the end times. Looking back it was all a little silly really but when your world is quite small these things can seem SO real.
Just popped on to wish you all well. However you celebrate the turning of the seasons I hope that there is a little more light in your life each day.
“This is the solstice, the still point
of the sun, its cusp and midnight,
the year’s threshold
and unlocking, where the past
lets go of and becomes the future,
the place of caught breath, the door
of a vanished house left ajar.”
