At the end of January I was blessed with the arrival of my little boy; a perfect little bundle of life that has already taught me more about patience, awareness and appreciation than I have ever come across in books or social media memes. He is a solid and steady 8 weeks old now and so I feel able to officially announce the end of my maternity break and look forward to celebrating the turning of the Wheel ahead.
There are numerous plans afoot for the future of Walk The Wheel and my various other interests, all of which will come clear in the near future. As I will be navigating the rocky road of parenting alongside all this however I can’t promise that the blog will be updated with any great regularity… BUT I can promise that WtW will be growing along with the year, with a very definite direction and determination, in some (or all) of the following ways…
* After a very successful online celebration for Imbolc I will continue to host an online Share Space where all Wheel Walkers are welcome to offer thoughts, writing and images that inspire the energy and themes of the season within them. This will take place on the Facebook group (you will need to join the group to take part) and a link to the event will appear here on the website. The Sharing will begin on the calendar date for each festival; it will then remain active for a week or so after.
* This Summer ‘Walk the Wheel’ aims to attend a number of local festivals in the Yorkshire/Derbyshire area, promoting the events and offering people a chance to discover its unique approach to celebrating the changing seasons and the Wheel of the Year. Dates will be announced in the coming months.
NB: If you know of a local festival in your area that might be suited to Walk The Wheel’s presence please let me know!
* By the end of this year I aim to have compiled an online package that offers those who can not attend meetings a chance to celebrate the Wheel using the methods and ideals that Walk The Wheel cultivates. Combining written articles, recorded meditations and stunning visuals this will hopefully be available by Samhain 2015.
And that’s just the things I know I want to achieve… who knows what new opportunities are just waiting to blossom as we leap into this succulent Springtime!
I hope you all have a similarly stimulating season ahead. Keep your eyes on this site and the Facebook group for updates and, who knows, maybe the occasional blog post.
Looking forward to walking the Wheel with you all.
