Brighid’s Day 2016

Bright blessings who mark Imbolc today!

The wheel of the year turns again and, hopefully, we’ll start to move towards Spring and leave behind the cold, dark days and nights of Winter. Of course, nothing is guaranteed – the accelerating effects of climate change are on my mind daily and where, in my younger years, the seasons were quite well-defined, it seems to me that everything has blurred noticeably in recent times.

There also seem to be a greater number of extreme weather events globally and I find myself facing the coming months and years with a distinct sense of apprehension and general gloom, particularly when I consider that the answer to these problems lies in the hands of my fellow humans. Here’s hoping we can begin to work towards restoring the balance sooner rather than later…
