"Go boldly in the direction of your dreams and act as if it was impossible to fail."
“There is vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening, that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost.”
"The time between Yule and the Spring Equinox was called the Cleansing Tide. It was a time of thinking and planning, of assessing what had been achieved and what unfinished work could readily be cast away. It was a time when all things were washed clear, or swept away. In ancient Rome, February was cleansing time, "the month of ritual purification." During the season, a new tide of life started to flow through the whole world of nature, and people had to get rid of the past and look to the future. Spring cleaning was originally a nature ritual"
"Women's Rites, Women's Mysteries." Ruth Barrett
You are the first snowdrop. You bring light into the dark winter landscape and a hint of spring to come. Your love of Earth and Sky has blossomed into a moon-white flower, danced by wind, rain, and snow. Over the winter, your heart, a bulb, is cradled in the womb-like embrace of Mother Earth. Your roots dream into the darkness of the soil; mother and child as one. And then a quickening, something inside of you stirs, a baby kicks inside the womb, and you send up green shoots to meet the light. You are the first snowdrop.
Sitting quietly, doing nothing, spring comes and the grass grows by itself.
