First off let me wish you all a bright and blessed Beltane Day!! I hope you all have the chance to celebrate and enjoy the greening, growing World in whatever way you most enjoy today, or in the days ahead. I am surprisingly unprepared this year, which is unsettling as Beltane has always been my favourite festival. But I am trusting that my lack of preparation is in fact an opportunity to be in the moment and to embrace this day with open eyes and an open heart… who knows what gifts some mindful awareness may bring?
Apologies for being so quiet around here but as the Maintenance post explained things are a’changing for the better and while they do my energies are being directed elsewhere. One result of that will go live in the next few days and I look forward to sharing it with you. On top of that there’s the baby currently sleeping on my chest who has somehow grown to 3 months of age and is both astonishing and time-consuming at the same time!
So the usual Beltane Markings article is running a little behind. However it will appear over the next week or so, so do keep checking back.
Until then here’s how you can celebrate Beltane with Walk The Wheel over the coming weeks:
