Mused Winter Solstice 2016 Sometimes it seems as if winter quotes make winter out to be a necessary evil which exists only for us to appreciate the subsequent warmth. Shelley: "If winter comes, can spring be far behind?" Shakespeare: "Now is the winter of our discontent made glorious summer by this sun of York." Hugo: "Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face."

But winter is far more than a down against which to compare the subsequent ups. Winter is a powerful, magical time. It is a season of strength. Of looking inward and finding focus. Bob Seger stated, "I write probably 80 percent of my stuff over the winter." Terri Guillemets reminds us, "The color of springtime is in the flowers; the color of winter is in the imagination." The Winter Solstice is a time to embrace the mysterious. The endless possibilities. The sense that we already have, within ourselves, boundless creativity and opportunity. We simply have to still ourselves and listen.

Winter is a powerful season. It gives us that space to look back and learn from our history. To look forward and envision what we wish to become. To be fully mindful of the present and be aware how each day has potential for us to speak out and impact the way our world proceeds. To move us toward peace, fulfillment, and an appreciation of what each of us has to offer.

Happy Winter Solstice.

Enjoy the Mused Winter Solstice 2016 Issue

A Practical Property Exorcism
Pagan - Ian Edwards, Editor

“Good afternoon. I’m from the safety service and I’m here to pick up our equipment.". Not a line most people think of as part of an exorcism, but surprisingly effective nonetheless under the right conditions. To learn what these are read this latest article.

The Passenger Book Review
Suspense / Thriller Books - Karen Hancock, Editor

The main character in this fun novel has been running for the last 10 years. Readers won't know why until the end, but the suspense and twists and turns make the book very difficult to put down.

Image Life Extension Mega Green Tea Extract
Green Tea, or Camellia Sinensis, has been a hot news topic in recent years. Green tea is a main staple consumed by Asian populations for thousands of years and is purported to have numerous beneficial effects on health - one of them being weight loss.
Image Jesus of Nazareth
Award winning film produced by Franco Zeffirelli, depicts the life of Jesus Christ from birth to resurrection. Originally made for television in 1977, this set is available on DVD or VHS. It´s been a few years since I last watched this awesome depiction of Christ´s life, but it still remains one of my favorite.
