I'm hosting Winterfaire 2012 for vendors and shoppers interested in supporting small business. The current perk poem for participation is "Hrafn's Nest" (Hart's Farm).  It's at 10 of 19 verses, just past the halfway point.

If you are holiday shopping for me, I have a wishlist.

Poetry in Microfunding:
"Within the Wolf's Jaws" belongs to The Asgard Eddas. Read about some starfarers and their interrupted journey.

The weather has been variable.  Today was warmer, windy, and wet.  I've seen more cardinals, recently.  They show up more once they realize the birdfeeders are full.
