I still owe some comments from last week. Finals got in the way but they’re over and I’m in for some much needed time off.
This week’s is from another of my holiday stories, The Light of Winter which is set in Wales and encompasses both Druidic and Christian holidays. It’s also about the only contemporary story I’ve ever written. It was for DSP’s advent calendar.
When Warun had said his good-byes, Gareth felt a little better. Warun was as ready for a holiday as he was. Gareth worried what he had planned might just be the wrong thing. It was a risky trip, but he hoped the high-end hotel he’d chosen would offset the rest of his planned surprise holiday gift for Warun. He’d be nervous about it until it happened. There was nothing to do for that. Even if he and Warun hadn’t been so waspish lately, he’d worry about this trip.
Blurb Dr. Gareth Evans and his medical doctor partner, Warun Jones, are having trouble making time for each other between end of term craziness for Gareth and holiday-related injuries pouring into the hospital for Warun. Gareth has planned what he hopes will be the perfect recipe for relieving the tension and bringing them back together. While Warun wants Gareth to partake in Plygain, a traditional dawn service of hymn singing for Christmas, Gareth plans to take Warun to Bryn Celli Ddu and introduce him to the Druid ritual of Alban Arthan, the celebration of the winter solstice.
