"Turn down the noise. Reduce the speed.
Be like the somnolent bears,
or those other animals that slow down
and almost die in the cold season.
Let it be the way it is. The magic is there in its power."
- Henry Mitchell -
I'm thinking of seeds, seeds within the womb of the Goddess, within the dark, nourishing Land, seeds waiting. And candles brightly burning, calling the Spring, calling Persephone from Her home to return to Her mother... but not just yet, still a little more time beneath, within, deep. This shall be my theme for Candlemas/Imbolc, but since my goddesses are of the Greco-Roman pantheon, I want to find a different name for this time of celebration. So, thinking, thinking ... the magic there, waiting.
