I have been busy with NaNoWriMo and since then, been briefly sick with lack of sleep/insomnia which took a trip to the AandE, and lots of bed rest (3 days, 1 1/2 hrs sleep through them; slept Monday 5pm-Tuesday 4.20, with a couple instances of wakefulness- water)…but alas, a quick post for my absence:
current read: The Fellowship of the Ring:
(walking-song, Hobbits humming)-
Upon the hearth the fire is Red,
Beneath the roof there is a bed;
But not yet weary are our feet,
Still round the corner we may meet
A sudden tree or standing stone
That none have seen but we alone
Tree and flower and leaf and grass,
Let them pass! let them pass!
Hill and water under sky,
Pass them by! pass them by!
Still round the corner there may wait
A new road or a secret gate,
And though we pass them by today,
Tomorrow we may come this way
And take the hidden paths that run
Towards the Moon or to the Sun.
Apple, thorn, and nut, and sloe,
Let them go! Let them go!
sand and stone and pool and dell,
Fare you well! Fare you well!
Home is behind, the world ahead,
And there are many paths to tread,
Through shadows to the edge of night,
Until the stars are all alight.
Then world behind and home ahead,
We’ll wander back to home and bed.
Mist and twilight, cloud and sbade,
Away shall face, away shall fade!
Fire and lamp, and meat and bread,
And then to bed! And then to bed!
