I watch the drizzle of rain start and stop outside my window.
Today’s my first day living somewhere new and although I’m not completely done with the action, today feels like the first day of my new life.
I have a lot of my belongings sitting outside under tarps and the thought and sight of rain makes me a little nervous.
I wonder what to do.
As the new day begins, I hope there isn’t much work to be done;
there’s always work to be done.
I think of you, all around the world, and how the weather is outside in this moment;
are you watching the rain like me?
Or does the sun shine bright, begging for you to come out?
Today is Imbolc;
a pagan holiday celebrated until tomorrow at sundown, marking the halfway point between the winter solstice and spring equinox.
You hear that? Spring is coming.
And though I love the snowy mountaintops that surround my loving home, I crave to lie in the sun without a shiver as blossoms bloom all around.
I know those of you on the other side of Earth, it just may be the exact opposite!
Now is your time to huddle inside and retreat for the upcoming autumn;
and that in itself is a beauty.
The seasons change as do I—as do you.
And we sit here together, taking it all in.
Wishing you all a beautiful week.
