Yesterday, at 10:45 pm, Eastern time was the midway point between the winter Solstice and Spring Equinox. I think of it as Mid-Winter. In the Celtic tradition it is considered the beginning of spring, Imbolc. We’ll be celebrating it this Saturday. If you can come on over, please let us know, so we have enough materials to share.

This oil painting from 1996 is from a series “House of the Ancestors”. They are inspired by traditional ideas.
