Merry Samhain/All Souls'/All Saints and Merry Beltane too to Southern Hemisphere peeps.

The full moon is a bright pearl in the sky,
little children while
they carry
lanterns that
light the way.

It's so warm today I didn't mind standing under the (lukewarm) showers. Outside right now, as the day edges towards evening, the sky is a blue-white, with fierce sunlight making sharp shadows on walls and the construction site next to my apartment block.

It would seem we stand at the threshold, at a liminal moment - perhaps the summer is reaching its peak and we see the wheel of the year turning. At the moment, it is painful and terribly warm - the chinwags talk about global warming. I say we stand at the gates; the choice is ours to step through.

And also Happy Samhain!

... Ostara.

And happy Holi, to those who celebrate!
jolantru: (dragon)
Enjoy the full moon and the tang yuan!

May the fire of creativity
light the way in your life,
Brigid bless!

To a good 2016.

It’s almost weird to think that school term starts next week (a few more days !) and that it’s the New Year (2016). My working brain is telling me: Classes start next week, students are back, and focus on teaching. The rest of my body is trying to catch up: New Year? When?

To be honest, I am ready for the New Year. Time to slough off old skins, old beliefs, old dreams – and take on new challenges. But for me, the New Year is nothing compared to Chinese New Year. I have two New Years to celebrate.

So, right now, on the eve of New Year’s Eve, when the horizons look closer… let’s take a breather and remember….

… and move on.
