Farewell to the darkness,

to unlit corners.

The light steals in,

the crone retreats.

See the light at the edge of the shadows,

Slowly it comes,

the Spring to greet!

The kids and I are doing an 'event' for every day of Feb before Valentine's. Today was Candlemas, so I decided that it was the day to make beeswax candles. I wanted to do it early enough so that we could burn a couple at the dinner table tonight. And luckily, the weather was so wonderfully cooperative that we sat in the sunshine in light sweatshirts and enjoyed a little bit of the coming back of the season of light as well. Thank you St Brigid!
