It is Imbolc, the coming of the spring. This brings new life and hope as nature shows us that things do get better and that there is a cycle of darkness and light. There are bulbs showing their shoots through the soil. They come each year dying down later after they have flowered. I see catkins on the hazel bushes too.
Our world is in chaos, floods, political fall outs, injustices and much more. Even though I myself am in a dark place at the moment, I can see faint stirrings of the light, and hope that things can change. It is time for everyone to wake up and see what needs to be done to make our world better for all. The gap between the rich and the poor needs to be closed as well as inequalities between the sexes. What can I do? What can you do? Let the energy of the spring carry us forward to bring about these changes. Don’t just sit there and think about it, do something. We have to work together to make things happen. Find the path that takes you forward.
