Imbolc bringer of Spring
Imbolc, in the ancient Celtic calender was a very important celebration. Being midway between winter and summer, Imbolc is the renewing of the Earth, praying that the seeds will grow and making sure that the lambs and foals would be born. The most important part of Imbolc was the performing of rituals so that they had enough food until the summers months. By the time of February…

Greetings and well met. I would like to thank all who gave me a moment of time to send me greetings on the event of my mortal birth. Tis a wonderful feeling I have received from you (and I do so hope all will see these words-if someone could let me know that indeed they were received it would be appreciated. On the other hand, if these letters are not given to those intended..I will let you know of my gratitude in some way).
Today was a day rich in Gifts of considerations…Continue
