Seasons Greetings!

Thank-you to all those friends of Flying Star Toys who have supported me this year - for reading my blog, writing to me and collecting my toys. You all have meant a great deal to me.
I wish you all a very merry Christmas and warm wishes for the season and of course a very happy new year!!!!

Sunday Thoughts

"Why have you ceased to speak of the tree, of which he who eats its fruit shall never hunger?"

"Again, plant this tree on the stone, that it fear not the buffetings of the winds; that the birds of heaven may come and multiply on it branches, for thence cometh wisdom."

quotes from various alchemical treatises taken from Alchemical Studies, C. G.Jung page 314
