Inch by inch we moved forward, attached by ropes around our waists. The ice was so cold we could feel it chilling our bones.

We inched on carefully watching for any cracks that might appear in the ice. The man at the front of the line signaled for us to stop and listen.

We all did, we heard the ice groaning and over that the tired howling of exhaustion. We all knew what to do. We spread out, those at the front laid down and continued to inch ahead. We further back held on tight to the ropes securing the men at the front.

We held those ropes tight we could not give an inch or they might slip and drown.

The howling was getting quieter now but we could not give up or relax our efforts. This was a valued member of our team they had saved many of us before.

The cry went up “Got her” slowly inch by inch we hauled her out. She was passed down the line across the frozen lake to the shore. As soon as she reached the bank she was wrapped up warmly in a moon blanket. And rushed off for medical treatment.

Later we visited her, luckily the Vet said she would be fine but the fabulous dog part of our team had been within an inch of losing her life! Even so she was soon back working with us again.

JusJoJan 2019 Daily Prompt – Jan. 10th Sunrise.

Our prompt for JusJoJan 2019, January 10th is brought to you by Toortsie! Click here to find her last post and say hi while you’re there! Toortsie’s word for our prompt today is “Sunrise.” Use it anywhere in your post or make it the theme of your post. Have fun!

I have used Imogen Heap’s video of Xizi because it encapsulates Sunrise.

Sunrise

Oh! glory greets the dawn

Gold, and blue colours born.

A ring of stones ages old

Awaits the Sunrise shrouded in cold.

We stand expectant hand in hand

We lean the lessons from the land.

Chanting words we close our eyes

Joining with companions and strangers we send our message to the skies.

In early December I was on a course with The Silent Eye. On the last day of the course we were up before Sunrise to drive a short distance from our guests house to Castlerigg.

We arrived at the stone circle shortly before dawn. Although it was freezing I was buzzing and warm. I was excited to greet the new day, I felt electric.

We were eight but we were not alone. There were three men there dressed for hill walking and wrapped up well. We spoke with them and they seemed like kindred spirits.

In my mind I christened them “Hobbits”, only because they seemed so at one with the surroundings and on a quest too.

There were also two young women tourists taking photos. They were a little bemused by us.

As Sunrise grew closer we invited the Hobbits to join us in our circle to join hands and greet the dawn. They did so willingly saying they were always glad to join a circle.

As we greeted the sunrise we chanted holding hands with companions and strangers. I felt an inner warmth filling my while being.

As we left I thanked the Hobbits for their company, they said they had been happy to share the moment with us and that our paths would definitely cross again.

One our way back to our breakfast we saw the sunrise in all its glory.

We did return to Castlerigg stone circle later that morning to finish the course. It is a stunning place.

Strangely Sue mentioned that she and Stuart had returned to the same circle at sun set and had met the three gentlemen again (my Hobbits) so they had indeed crossed paths once more.

More thoughts from The Silent Eye‘s : The Full Circle : Finding your way home, weekend in Cumbria. For Just Jot it January.

Just Jot it January Day Six Master.

Our prompt for JusJoJan 2019, January 6th hosted by LindaGHill is brought to you by Sadje. Click here to find her last post and say hi while you’re there! Sadje’s word for our prompt today is “master.” Use it anywhere in your post or make it the theme of your post. Enjoy!

There are many meanings to the word Master. It can mean you are the best you can be in a skill, job or pastime. Or that you are in charge as in Master of Ceremonies, Ring Master, Gang Master. Also you can take a master class least by someone who is a master in the subject. There are school masters, master degrees, and old/ grand masters (as artist and sportspeople are often referred to)

My favourite is being master to a pet, thought in this case I think master is the wrong word as I see my pet as an equal a friend.

To

Master

Your craft is

Something we all

We strive to achieve

Maybe we will take a

Masterclass to gain knowledge

Being a Grandmaster is not

The only thing we should strive to gain

We need to be rounded people as well.

Then of course there is the Masterpiece, Mastermind and the Masterplan

I have tried an Acrostic Nonet today. I will try to explain the word within the poem. This fun, you know.😉

Enigmatic

Easy to understand it was not

No it was mysterious , strange

In truth it was fathomless

Great men tried to solve it

Most were just confused

All realised

The answer

Is the

Clue.

Just Jot it January Day Two. One Liner Wednesday.

“I can’t change it so I shall learn to live with it acceptance or grief.”

Thoughts of mine this morning.

This one liner was brought to you care of LindaGHill for #jusjojan and One-Liner Wednesday.

Just Jot It January. Day One.

This a very late entry for day one of Just Jot it January. This is another brainchild of the very talented LindaGHill

Today’s prompt for the 1st of January 2019 is to write whatever you want. If you have not already written about your new year resolutions, now would be the perfect start. What ever you do have fun.

As luck would have it I have already done that so I shall have to write about something else.

It’s getting late and I don’t want to miss out on doing JusJoJan. So I am going to write about the fact that I actually did absolutely nothing today. I got up early and walked Ruby, then I basically bummed around all day. There that’s not a particularly good start to this month’s exercise but there we are let’s hope I can improve. Here is a little Etheree.

Late

A rush

To create

I had no time

For contemplation

Poetic juices flowing

From were I just do not know

So I opened my mind and tapped

My phone’s screen fast, releasing the flow

Exactly where this will end I don’t know.

Ruby 💜

Just Jot it January. Day 29 Fantastic.

Just Jot it January Day 29 today’s prompt is Fantastic and it is brought to us by Jill, J-Dub. Do please remember to visit her site.

#jusjojan

Rules and Prompts Here

Pingback Here

Fantastic is one of those words that though is ment to convey one meaning ( positive, magical, special) now has been tamed down in modern language. Nowadays it can be used in a sarcastic negative way or in a positive way!

Fantastic said Mable to herself as say her train disappearing into the distance. Fantastic she thought as it began to rain!

Mable was cold, wet and now she was late.

Fantastic, thought Greg , she has missed the train too. Fantastic here comes the rain.

“Hello, Mabel, isn’t it” Greg said as he sidled up to a wet and cold Mabel. “Would you like to share my umbrella” he smiled his most winning smile at her.

Mabel smiled “That would that would be lovely” Greg’s heart fluttered she has the most fantastic smile.

Mable was surprised to find herself under the same umbrella as Greg the guy who works upstairs for her at the same firm she works for. They often exchanged smiles but had never spoken before.

“It’s three quarters of an hour until our next train shall we have a coffee?” Asked Greg. Mabel smiled, “That would be fantastic thanks”

That was the start of their relationship and just shows how a sarcastic, negative “Fantastic” can, by circumstances, become a happy positive “Fantastic!”.

By the way when there train arrived not many people noticed it was being driven by a Purple unicorn. Now that is truly Fantastic!
