"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February
Don't forget to check the calendar(s) for session times. Sessions are held on different platforms, so be sure to find out where the session will take place:-
When you go on holiday, do you put your feet up to relax, or do you seek thrills and adventure? Or have you been somewhere expecting a nice easy outing only to find things go pear-shaped and you don't quite get what expected?
What is the scariest or most dangerous experience you have ever had? Have there ever been times when you have wondered 'What am I doing here?'
Last night fifty tourists got stuck overnight in cable cars up in the French Alps. Apparently some cables got tangled and not everyone could be brought down in time before nightfall. Many tourists had to be belayed down some 40m to the ground below, but those stuck higher up had to spend the night in their little cabins.
