so the darkest time of the year is falling behind us
it is now the time of the oak king
the wheel of the year has turned~and we are faced with the prospect of light and warmth~renewal as we look to new life and inspiration for the days ahead
in the darkness before dawn i walked our home, lighting two candles on our alter for the Dagda and Brighid~both symbols of the promise of light and life...
then out into the garden, dark and frosty underfoot i light a candle at the alter in the garden sending blessings across the land to friends far and wide
~however you celebrate this time of the journey back to the light i hope your day is filled with peace and joy~
