February: Love

Our weekend was quiet and yet things were accomplished.  Small things that are making myself and I dare say us all happy.  We are moving more.  Soccer together, bike riding, walking.  Glorious winter weather with little rain (so far) is helping this to happen.  And art making is happening too.  Which always does me good.  There is no shortage of love here.  And we keep things like Valentine's Day simple for the sake of sanity.

Despite the frequent purges to "stuff" that seems to gather around us I always find more to pass on. While doing a recent purge I decided to use some cup hooks to create a necklace display/storage solution in my closet.  And it makes me happy to look at it and I actually wear my necklaces more often.  It's the little things, it really is.

A Poem

On Imbolc

In two lined hands the bowl is held
water shifts inside
trickles leave marks along the side of a blue bowl

The hands are steady,
practiced, and pulse

with healing,
with grace

The hands are ageless
and move with a sureness

that brings comfort
that brings understanding

Great Bridgid
of the fire and the well
I offer you a restless mind, a full heart,
and a body seeking health

I ask for your blessing
I ask for your peace
