Merry Christmas One and All

As some of you know I was never very good at being organised enough to do Christmas cards and a few years back I decided to give up completely in preference for a special Christmas blog post.

So Merry Christmas everyone with love from me and Michael! I hope you've all managed to celebrate as you wished despite the weather. 

As traditional I've got a video for you. This one uses a song by the wonderful Harry Bird and the Rubber Wellies who play at the Performance Cafe at Greenbelt, where I volunteer each year.

This year I also offer you a poem I wrote as part of a workshop at Queen's Theological College and which was featured as part of a performance of The Virgin Monologues in early December.


Handmade: 
Everything I ever had
was handmade; 
Everything I ever had 
except him. 

Handmade 
clothes; 
handmade
cups and bowls;
handmade
life 


Now I am Handmaid, 
mother, 
bearer. 

Handmaid 
of the One; 
Handmaid
of the begotten
not made.
