winter loosens her grip

midway point between the winter solstice and the spring equinox

feasting and bonfires

food and music

House cleaning

A celebration, a welcoming, the returning Sun

Don’t loose heart, spring will return.

You would not believe my imaginations, I put myself back in the day this celebration began.

I appreciate my ancestry.

  1. This was a beautiful post, dear friend. And that cake. Made of all of my favorites. Makes me want a piece. Hoping your Imbolc was one of joy and love.
