"This is the violet hour, the hour of hush and wonder, when the affectations glow and valor is reborn, when the shadows deepen along the edge of the forest and we believe that, if we watch carefully, at any moment we may see the unicorn."

Heil Dir, Sonne

Yes.....it finally happened... I awoke to the "usual" cold, grey day....made coffee, checked e-mails, applied for a job....read blogs.....then, suddenly....the clouds lifted and VOILA - the Sun appeared! I threw on my running clothes, but once outside (into a "balmy 68"..), I decided just to walk and inhale the smell of the Sun, of warmth on my face.... (and, in my rush, I neglected to take my camera).... ah, it was "Gotterlich" - as we say in German....heavenly....and it was.
As I write this, it is STILL sunny, blue skies abound..... it is just what this girl needed. As for tomorrow.....who knows? Right now, I don't care....I am basking in the sun's golden rays! I leave you with a quote from Wagner's "Siegfried"....(You know I am feeling better if I am quoting Wagner, right?) Brunhilde awakens after Siegfried kisses her - but - (and I always loved this), her first words are to the Sun......."Heil Dir, Sonne, Heil Dir Licht"..... "Hail to you Sun, Hail to you Light"..... and not to Siegfried.
And perhaps tonight.......a MOON sighting! (I live in hope.)

  1. Sending you love and sunshine from our very warm city. Reading more than writing and thinking how much fun it would be to share some time with you. Take care my dear Robin, be well and know you are loved.

  2. Hurrah. I am so glad for you. A wonderful respite and refilling of your hope and joy. Here comes the sun!

  3. Yay. So glad you had some sun, we have been having too much sun here this week. I hope you get to see the moon too, then it would be a perfect day. xoxo

  4. oh wonderful!!! i can just see you running around trying to catch every last ray!!

    ...and you've got to love an opera in which the heroine salutes the sun before kissing Prince Charming haha!

    fingers crossed that the sky stays open for more celestial sightings-- hugs xoa

  5. So glad for you wish you lots of sunnydays......

    And a big hug from Beaudor and Me.

  6. Allegra, seeing your comments on my blog is ALWAYS a joy and a day-brightener! My one day of sun is but a memory....fog rolled back in last night and is still here this morning......sigh....but I am grateful for that brief glimpse....(wish I could have seen the Moon tho.....)

    I do feel your love.... I want you to know that....and know that I feel the same for you....hope that one day -perhaps even in this year, we WILL be able to meet and spend time together.

    I hope you can smell the delicious scents drifting up to you from your "Paradise Garden"...

    Sending you and B. Loved many warm hugs and all my love.

  7. Suki.... I did have a glorious sun-filled day....fog returned in the evening.....but, hey, it was better than nothing!

    Sending you and Bibs a big hug...and thank you again for the glorious Moon photo.....I will carry that image with me forever.


    ♥ Robin ♥

  8. Anne, no "perfect" day for this girl....the fog rolled back in last night.... but, I enjoyed feeling those sun beams on my face....

    Love to you and "Da Boys",

    ♥ Robin ♥

  9. Amanda, you made me smile....and, you were right.....I was running around, face upturned, trying to soak in every ray of sun! I guess I reminded myself of "Brunhilde".... when one was "put to sleep" on a giant rock, surrounded by fire for many years, it makes sense (at least to me), that you would look up to the Sun and greet him.

    Hugs back, my friend!

    ♥ Robin ♥

  10. Ah, Beaudor (and your wonderful "Mum"), how lovely to have you come to visit me! I adore your blog...those photos of the baby Falcons took my breat away....and of course, seeing Beaudor's Family.... how beautiful to see Ridgies all together.....

    Hugs Back to you both!

    ♥ Robin ♥

  11. From one sun worshiper to another...

    YAY!!!!!!!!!!!! It's about time!

    Now we'll work on la luna sightings ;)


  12. Hi Robin!
    I am so happy for you dear!
    And about finding a job I know the perfect job for you.
    Lo will tell you!
    It was sooooo wonderful getting you on the phone and talk to you. My gosh you have a real heavenly voice.
    I arrived home save today after a long travel, but we made it safe.
    Such wonderful memories to look back on. I can't even believe it all.
    Will the weather stay this good for you?
    Enjoy it as much as you can!

    Liebe Grüße

  13. Marianne....Ich kann nicht glauben das Du und Feliz zu Hause sind.... es geht so schnell.... aber Ich WEISS Sjimmie war froh!!!

    It was heavenly to talk to you too....your voice was just as I imagined it. I already adore Felix....having heard stories from Lo and KJ and Brian about how intelligent, intuitive and sweet he is....plus, he and Emma bonded!

    I am happy you both are home safely.....sleep, rest, and I am looking forward to seeing some of those 700-plus photos you took!

    I miss you..... really! But I know we WILL meet!!!!

    Liebe Grüße - immer!!!!

    ♥ Robin ♥
