Imbolc, new Beginnings, new dreams, the start of something special............

I love this time of the year, today is Imbolc we are halfway between the Winter solstice and Spring equinox. It is a Fire festival for Bride, for the hearth and home, a time to let go of the past and to look to the future an awakening of life once more. 

                        To Our Lady of Springtime,
                        Bringer of all fruitfulness,
                        By the steady measure of the Timeless Dance;
                        By the Pulse of Light and Darkness.
                        By the Seed hidden under the ice,
                        By seed and root, by stem and bud;
                        By leaf and flower and fruit;
                        By life and love do I ask for your guidance,
                        your breath of newness.
                        That I might welcome back the light  into my life
                        and the life of all those that share my path.

The Winner of the bag is

                                                         Victoria Vollam
                                                     Congratulations xxxx

Happy Imbolc

Lovely. It is Lammas here, on a pale and overcast summer's day, and we are looking forward to a slow withdrawal from the fierce heart of summer.
