Moonwise newsletter for Birch Moon
May I take this early opportunity to wish you all a Happy Solstice, Christmas and New Year. The picture is of a fire wheel, burnt on solstice fires in our northern lands to represent the return of the sun (source: Wiki Commons). These are very difficult times, with the threat of ecological disaster growing yearly (thank you, Sir David, for stating it so clearly), and the British government’s attention elsewhere. May 2019 be a year of renewal and hope.
Thank you if you’ve already bought your 2019 Moonwise Calendars and Diaries. The new calendar starts today (8 December), and the new diaries start a week on Monday.

If you haven’t bought them yet,
Ordering from us at Edge of Time, you get discounts for ordering calendars and diaries together, and the postage is kept below cost. We’ve also decided to extend the extra savings when you buy just two diaries, or just three calendars, ideal for getting extra copies as presents for your friends and family. You might also want to look at the ideas for other gifts from Edge of Time (see below).

Some of you prefer to buy via well-known companies (though we still post the calendars and diaries ourselves), so here are the Amazon links:
and here are the eBay links (limited numbers available):
If you’re looking for something else to give or enjoy over the festive period, do consider A Patchwork of Angels by Lynne P Emmerson, whose work you may know from the Moonwise Diary. It’s the first in her new Mystic Realms series, for teenagers and anyone older with a sense of wonder. The young heroes deal with a sad death, and are astonished to meet their guardian angels. They discover how wonderful nature is, and how everything is connected.

Graham’s games Dicewords and Juggler are easy-to-carry word games, perfect for the festival season, and throughout the year. Each game is short, fun and full of strategic choices. Dicewords can be played as co-operatively as you like.

Buy all these and more from our secure website:

Look along the top line of the order form for our different categories.
Explore the Edge of Time link above, and find other books you might like:
  • a whole range of books on communal living and various green projects
  • a now complete series of graphic novels that are a radical retelling of the gospels, showing a Jesus who is human and often political
  • books for parents with young Downs Syndrome children and their friends
  • Anna: a mother’s moving and inspiring account of her young daughter’s life and death
As ever, I'd be very grateful if you could spread the word about the Moonwise Calendars and Diaries (and indeed our other products, if you like them) on social media.

Whichever northern winter festivals you celebrate, I hope you have a meaningful and enjoyable time, and perhaps together we can bring in a brilliantly transformative 2019.
