Coming down out of the freezing sky with its depths of light, like an angel, or a Buddha with wings, it was beautiful, and accurate, striking the snow and whatever was there with a force that left the imprint of the tips of its wings — five feet apart — and the grabbing thrust of its feet, and the indentation of what had been running through the white valleys of the snow — and then it rose, gracefully, and flew back to the frozen marshes to lurk there, like a little lighthouse, in the blue shadows — so I thought: maybe death isn’t darkness, after all, but so much light wrapping itself around us — as soft as feathers — that we are instantly weary of looking, and looking, and shut our eyes, not without amazement, and let ourselves be carried, as through the translucence of mica, to the river that is without the least dapple or shadow, that is nothing but light — scalding, aortal light — in which we are washed and washed out of our bones.

31 Days of Halloween...Day 26

Finally here I am...a lot later than normal...and the reason..we have had no electricity all day. All I can say is that it's been a very dark today in the To be safe I've stayed in my's one of the few places that there is light. With the cottages up here being so old the windows have really deep sills so they don't let too much light in...but still I wouldn't swop living here for anything.

For todays page, I have chosen to share this fabulous image from Bugaboo..another version of my dream home. I loved the fact that there is a cat at the side..a large one...we'll take it as Jeff..he's my biggest And an owl in the tree..quite like my house. Ever since I lost Henry a barn owl lands on the roof of my house and I can hear it walk along the roof. A lot of Owl 'experts' have told me that they all have their own routes and my house must just be part of the route..I like to think that he's been sent by Henry. We used to laugh that we should live in a gothic type this image is one that I just had to use.

Well the coffee is calling as I don't think that my caffeine levels are up to scratch Sparkle has been really good..he has a portable gas cooker thing and brought it round to make me some coffee magic. Never has anything tasted as good as that first Now I'm off to make's sweet and sour tonight..homemade as's miles to the nearest chinese..but's still a treat. So until tomorrow...take care and happy crafting.
