Ponderings

posted in Uncategorized |

See the pretty icon shirerain made for me? I’m so excited!! Loreena McKennitt… how much I love her songs and this one is my favorite (iTunes tells me that I’ve listened to it 70 times (and that’s just since I ripped it back in September.)) I never know how to describe how I feel listening to it… It’s almost this feeling like a fairy tale has come true–something magical and mystical and beautiful revealed in my soul. There are times when I almost can believe in elves and fairies…


When the dark wood fell before me
And all the paths were overgrown
When the priests of pride say there is no other way
I tilled the sorrows of stone.

I did not believe because I could not see
Though you came to me in the night
When the dawn seemed forever lost
You showed me your love in the light of the stars.

Cast your eyes on the ocean
Cast your soul to the sea
When the dark night seems endless
Please remember me.

Then the mountain rose before
By the deep well of desire
From the fountain of forgiveness
Beyond the ice and the fire.

Cast your eyes to the ocean
Cast your soul to the sea
When the dark night seems endless
Please remember me.

Though we share this humble path, alone
How fragile is the heart.
Oh give these clay feet wings to fly
To touch the face of the stars.

Breathe life into this feeble heart
Lift this mortal veil of fear
Take these crumbled hopes, etched with tears.
We’ll rise above these earthy cares

Cast your eyes to the ocean
Cast your soul to the sea
When the dark night seems endless
Please remember me.

Please remember me.

Recently, I’ve felt so choked on the realism of school and life that it was nice to have that reminder of the beauty and love in this world. My feet aren’t just clay, they are cement and I had forgotten that I had wings.

I’m truly enjoying this medium, of posting and reading the thoughts of so many people across the world. So, tonight, a special thank you to the people who through their written word have become friends… In such a sort time, you have enriched my life and for that, you are loved.

Okay, I’m stopping now before I become too sappy.

  • I love Loreena McKennitt. I was just listening to her last night. Do you do yoga? Because, you do, allow me to suggest playing Loreena in the background. It’s the perfect accompanyment.

    Also, I wanted to say this is a very sweet post. I’ve been woefully lax on my reviews of GG fic lately and hope to get back in the swing. I’m looking forward to carving out some time to read your newest update.

      Yes, you were part of my Loreena McKennitt day…when I realized that several people on my friend list was listening to her. It was pretty amusing.

      I don’t do yoga, although I’ve been contemplating integrating it into my life. Of course, I say that about a lot of things. How did you start? Do you have a set routine of what you do?

      Don’t worry about the reviews, at least for me. I think I still owe you one for your last (excellent) chapter of BRIO, and you posted that how long ago? Hmm, it has been a while.. Perhaps a review would encourage more updating, yes? Although, I understand that you are in the middle of an Alias lure and can’t possibly be deterred from that to return to lowly little Gilmore Girls and Jess. Remember Jess? 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

  • I have my Loreena McKennitt CD in the car too…
