Swan Song

After a week in balmy sunny weather, we have returned home to a steady, yet surprisingly warm rain (is it really December 30)?  Adjusting to the time change and the general quiet monotony of the driving rain is just what we needed today. A time to quiet ourselves and relish being lazy peaceful.

 I fell in love with swans when I lived in England.  There was something so wise and elegant about them.  Swans are one of the oldest and most powerful totems in folk lore.  "They reflect the power and longevity that is possible as we awaken to the beauty and power within ourselves. The swan is the totem of the child, the poet, the mystic, and the dreamer."  A perfect picture to have in my head while reflecting on the past year and preparing for the new. Wishing that your 2011 ends in a swan song and you all a safe and Happy New Year!
