First Day of Celtic Spring

Today is the first day of spring in the Celtic calendar. It is the midpoint between the winter solstice and the vernal equinox. If you think about the length of the days and the light rather than the temperature (not so much of an issue this year as it has been so mild), I find that it makes sense.

New Year Greetings 2023


May 2023 be a year of letting it go, 
of moving through the days with kindness and compassion
and finding a calm center in this spinning world.

Solstice Greetings

 It is the time of the winter solstice, a vulnerable point in the year, a time of extremes—the shortest day, the longest night. I feel a weight, a heaviness along with the festivity. The season itself asks me to make it a vulnerable point in my year, to open my heart, and in doing so, feel the darkness as well as the light, sorrow as well as joy. The significance seems to be not that it is a celebration of light but that it is a celebration of light in the darkness. I open my heart to the light in the darkness.
