Imbolc is the first of three fertility Sabbats and the first of four fire festivals. It is the beginning of new life... new beginnings.

A Sabbat of promise. Imbolc is the seed planted for a bountiful year in all aspects of your life.
Now is the time to ready your cabinet for the year. Empty it, wipe out the cob webs ( that effect is only cool in Hollywood movies), and take inventory. Take inventory of your personal life as well. Are there things you need to deal with and dispense with so you can move forward?

This is a good time to welcome new things into your life. Invite inspiration and creativity to abide with you throughout the year.

A Shift in Time

After all my years of being in this body on this plane, it still amazes me how time passes so quickly. You'd think I'd be use to it by now.

Since the first of the year, I've been thinking about the next casket post. Imbolc would (at that time) be just a few short weeks away. Because I want to post these two weeks prior to needing the supplies, I knew I was good until about the 15th of the month. Then my household shifted drastically and time as I knew it, ceased to exist. Nothing life-threatening.. just life-altering for the time being.

At 48 years old I find myself solely responsible for a 2 yr old 24/7. Our daughter left for Nashville for a job interview (which she got and is now in the process of settling in music city). My husband left for his three weeks on the river boat. Tootsie Pop and I are having a ball. But by the end of the evening I'm tired. I manage to make it about two hours longer than she does. hehe. Not a bunch of time to keep up with email and the blogs.

How long this will last, I'm not sure. Hubby will be gone two more weeks and then I'll have an extra pair of eyes. She climbs everywhere! But until our daughter is settled and has moved the baby down there with her, my time isn't my own. I'll do my best to keep up here but the posts may not always come as far ahead of an event as I would prefer. Bear with me, please. Life will return to normal... someday.

Many Blessings
