In her hopefully prophetic song Twist in My Sobriety,
British songwriter Tanita Tikaram wrote:

"Cup of tea, take time to think, yeah
Time to risk a life, a life, a life
Sweet and handsome
Soft and porky
You pig out 'til you've seen the light
Pig out 'til you've seen the light”

Now in Scotland today/tonight is Hogamany, or
New Year’s Eve, and celebrations generally
extend to early on New Year’s Day (and sometimes
even until the bank holiday which is on Monday).

Also I am posting this using Hogwasher newsreader,
and have to click on a picture of a hog with a
monocle to activate it.

And the phase of moon is late waning crescent moon,
which is associated with the Welsh crone goddess
Ceridwen, who in her pursuit of Taliesin took on the
form of a sow (and also a hen), so can be called
the sow goddess.

All of those pig/hog/sow references lead me to
hope for major positive world changes by dawn
on New Year’s Day ("You pig out 'til you've seen
the light”)

See the thread “High hopes for Hogamany” on
alt.religion.druid for further posts from me on the
subject, hopefully reporting progress, though I was
hoping not to work New Year’s Eve.

Now for a cup of tea...
