A month of anticipation is May. Building towards something, bursting forth with newness and light. Our May was filled with new commitments, new blooms, new ideas, new strength. I tried to take moments to appreciate the sun and rain. So often I can be too absorbed by getting things crossed off my list or with the most recent breakdown in communication between a 5 and 2 year old to just exist.
Yoga helps me with this. And the building of my spiritual practice will help with that as well. I was lucky to celebrate Beltaine to start off the month and the tradition of those involved and the things we did to mark the day felt good. A steady, warm place. A place of connection between souls as the ribbons went around the pole.
There have been notes jotted down, and sketches drawn. I've found a spring rhythm and yet summer comes knocking soon. The sensation that fills me most days is one of waiting as a door is slowly swung open to reveal a lush landscape ahead.
I have to navigate the path, stopping often to check the status of myself and my loves. We walk together though we are different seekers on the journey. May heralds a time to dance for a while and then reflect.
