Just wanted to pop in and wish everyone a blessed and peaceful Imbolc.

Traditionally a time to recognize the lengthening days and that spring is just around the corner, I love this time of year for taking walks in the brisk air, perusing seed catalogs, and resting up before the business of spring.

This painting of the Goddess Brigid was the feature of the temple at the Gaia Goddess Gathering in 2013.

Of course, the Goddess and Saint Brigid is often the focus of this seasonal celebration, and there are so many traditional customs associated with this time: Brigid’s mantle, Brigid’s cross, attending to the hearth, milk-based dishes, shepherd’s pie, and more!

Tomorrow, I’ll be gathering with my soul family to have tea, tasty treats, make Brigid’s crosses, and plan out some activities for the year. How will you be celebrating Imbolc?

Bright blessings,

Thistle

PS: I really am working on a whole slew of posts to revitalize this blog. Pinky swear!
