If you were a country, what would be your national anthem?

... amazing timing. I was going to post this today anyway.

The amusing revelation about my recent posts is that all of the things I'd been "doing wrong" with my life—bouncing from job to job, having a resume full of scattershot experiences, even letting myself get distracted by my leisure time pursuits—are the things that opened up this new opportunity.

Mr. Steinman, it seems, had a point: sometimes, a "wasted" youth may just be better than falling lockstep into the ill-fitting social role of "Grown-Up" (a concept distinct and entirely different from becoming an adult).

Here, then, is the National Anthem of the Sovereign Principality of Athelind:






A wasted youth is better by far / Than a wise and productive old age ... )

The runner-up, for the record, was Rush's "Freewill".

Solstice Greetings, everyone, and peace and good will to one and all!

On this, the shortest day and longest night of the year, let us remember that it is, indeed, darkest before the dawn, and in the cold of winter, embrace each other in a spirit of love, fellowship, and joy.


"Praise be to the distant sister sun, joyful as the silver planets run."

On this, the shortest day of the year, [livejournal.com profile] quelonzia and I would like to wish all our friends and family all the gifts of Blessing, Renewal and Redemption for the coming year.

May we find laughter in the jokes that Coyote will play.

May we find strength to stand against greed and wickedness, and courage to speak the truth.

May we find peace, and joy, and love.

And I say... it's all right.
