Spring Begins

The first day of February is St. Brigid's Day; the second is Candlemas. Both mark the end of winter and the beginning of spring on the Celtic and Christian calendars. The days are longer and the growing light lets us know that the earth is coming alive beneath the snow.

The photograph of Spirit Book #2: Candlemas Cradled was taken on the magnolia tree from which I gathered the twigs used in the book. It is part of a series of photographs of the Spirit Books set in nature. They will eventually become a print-on-demand book with hand lettered quotes about nature. I expect it to be available next December.
