De-husking

Well, I’m nicely immersed in all things Christmassy, from tree lights and outings and wrapping paper to the strange dearth of Brussels sprouts in the supermarkets. (Is there a national shortage? Why did nobody tell us?) I fetched my brother over on the 21st, and I’ll take him back on the 28th, so we get 3 days of Advent at home together, and three days of Christmas.

I paused for just long enough to remember that I’d actually consulted Yi, back in November, asking for a guiding principle for the Christmas break. I went to remind myself of what it said, and found this moving line:

‘Constancy, good fortune: regrets vanish.
Nothing that does not bring harvest.
With no beginning, there is completion.
Before de-husking, three days.
After de-husking, three days.
Good fortune.’

Quite. De-husking’s the day after tomorrow.

Happy Christmas. 🙂

  1. Hilary, there’s plenty of Brussels in our local Sainsbury’s! I’m with Jill – can’t stand the things myself and always put my mum in charge of dealing with them.

    Happy de husking!

  2. dear Hilary
    Wishing you all the best in year 2008
    a lot of joy and heartfelt inner peace
    which is anyway the root for any joy,
    as Socrates said long time ago;
    what are you looking for is within inside of you,
    it is, it was and always will be,
    that is what I Ching reminds me all the time
    and yes closer am I to my heart,
    clearer are the answers for me from divine I Ching

    More you are kind,
    brighter shines
    your inner light 😉

    kind regard
