December stars, a snow poem, and a song


star for jude

Close to joy

stitching rings around joy

ephemera unearthed this week — there’s my hare constellation

trial stars

last winter stars

Mother and pop star Lady Gaga

paper machier stars

stars of light

silk stars, again

Inspiration for the morning: Mary Oliver’s poem “First Snow”. You can read it here.

And to get ‘close to joy’ for two minutes, try viewing this Gaelic song, performed in a gymnasium full of rhythmic kids, who keep a percussive beat going with plastic cups. You’ll love it!

(thank you Mary Ann’s brother for leading me to this amazing video!)
