 I figured out how to make cross-posting work automatically. I hope everyone comes on over here. In the past, I stayed at LJ because of some active communities I was a part of, but those have all faded, so if lots of my friends are here, I'll be happy.

I have started getting Russian spam on my own LJ posts. I can probably change the security to prevent that, but still. just not a good sign.

So my New Year's Eve was a quiet one at home with B and Mop, and this morning we had meditation, followed by chai and cookies--good to start the year with old friends who are a true community. And later I'll go to write with my writing partner, after not getting much done in the last few weeks on my own.

I hope everyone has a wonderful New Year! 

In Memoriam, [Ring out, wild bells]

Ring out, wild bells, to the wild sky,
   The flying cloud, the frosty light:
   The year is dying in the night;
Ring out, wild bells, and let him die.

Ring out the old, ring in the new,
   Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
   The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.

Ring out the grief that saps the mind
   For those that here we see no more;
   Ring out the feud of rich and poor,
Ring in redress to all mankind.

Ring out a slowly dying cause,
   And ancient forms of party strife;
   Ring in the nobler modes of life,
With sweeter manners, purer laws.

Ring out the want, the care, the sin,
   The faithless coldness of the times;
   Ring out, ring out my mournful rhymes
But ring the fuller minstrel in.

Ring out false pride in place and blood,
   The civic slander and the spite;
   Ring in the love of truth and right,
Ring in the common love of good.

Ring out old shapes of foul disease;
   Ring out the narrowing lust of gold;
   Ring out the thousand wars of old,
Ring in the thousand years of peace.
