I just thought I'd post a photo from home. . . It is 43*f with brilliant sunshine. Yesterday was a wild day in the North East. . NYCity had winds 60 mph blowing thru the canals of buildings. Western NYState and other part had s-n-o-w. It is that time of year. ;-)
In the photo the broad Atlantic is on the other side of the Dunes. . .you cannot see the O'Shea hacienda con veranda, from this side.
Today is one of those days when I'd love to roam around the dunes, along the beach, anywhere. . . .but in the world of academia we are running rushing towards finals. . .in a few days some will begin. And then, magic of magic with faerie dust and sparkles, we are OFF and outta here for Christmas break.
The Advent season is here. . . a mystic time of year . . a time of waiting, longing, angst even for some, expectation, hope, joy, some find it a sad time, tinged with the will to hope and wait for better times, better life. . . The prophetic readings from the Hebrew Scriptures challenge and console us, urging us to look over and beyond those things which slow us down and trip us up, to keep our eyes on the coming dawn of new life, new beginnings, new hope.
