Happy New 2021!



For the end of year post I have chosen some recent images from two places that mean everything to me - two images from Haworth, Brontë Country, my spiritual home and two images I took this Christmas time in our actual Leeds home - our little townhouse we like to call "cottage".

2020 has been Annus Horribilis, and I am sure most of us are looking forward to its end. Here is to a much brighter, healthier, happier and more prosperous 2021!


~ Happy New Year! ~

Christmas 2020

 


"Music I lovebut never strain
Could kindle raptures so divine,
So grief assuage, so conquer pain,
And rouse this pensive heart of mine
As that we hear on Christmas morn,
Upon the wintry breezes borne.

Though Darkness still her empire keep,
And hours must pass, ere morning break;
From troubled dreams, or slumbers deep,
That music kindly bids us wake:
It calls us, with an angel's voice,
To wake, and worship, and rejoice;

To greet with joy the glorious morn,
Which angels welcomed long ago,
When our redeeming Lord was born,
To bring the light of Heaven below;
The Powers of Darkness to dispel,
And rescue Earth from Death and Hell."

~Anne Brontë~

Merry Christmas!

 
I know a lot of us are struggling one way or another at the moment, but I sincerely hope Christmas brings you a moment of much needed respite, and that everyone can find it in their hearts to feel love, peace and joy of the festive season.

Main Street, Haworth, Brontë Country, Winter 2018

 


"The winter wind is loud and wild,

Come close to me, my darling child;

Forsake thy books, and mateless play;

And while the night is gathering grey,

We'll talk its pensive hours away;"

~Emily Jane Brontë~
