Meditations and Celebrations
|Local Pear Blossom|
I hope everyone has had a fantastic week and had a chance to celebrate Beltane in whichever way your personal path has taken you.
I am very happy to report that my meditation journeys are much more fruitful. I awoke early Monday morning last week with a start at 3.33 am with the half moon shining brightly into our bedroom and decided to try a meditation journey by moonlight. This time I was no longer alone with just the Maiden, but there were other people whose faces I couldn't see, but finally I could see and not just hear a softly babbling brook and with relief and growing excitement I saw stepping stones across the water covered in soft green moss.
I heard more distinct voices in the fields in front of me, deep throaty laughter and distinctly flirtatious giggles emanated from warm sunny fields and I was
Heart thumping, I broke from my journey, Dancing - Me? For those of you that know me personally, you'll know that this brought me out in an immediate cold sweat, not only do I have the proverbial two left feet, I can't think of anything worse to do in public!

we all do when up the creek without a paddle,
I phoned one of my best friends...
I have known this lovely lady since I came
home from hospital at a week old, and it's
fair to say that we've had more than your
average share of candle lighting, mooching
around old stones, ghost hunting, observing
old and strange customs - just the person!

Whilst shuffling from one foot to another in some kind of rhythm to might not count as dancing, it's a start!

We really needn't have worried, we found the group just off the coastal park and were warmly greeted by a group of lovely people following every sort of path you could think of!

How excited were we to run round the circle to join in this age old custom, curious onlookers forgotten! Thank you to all the lovely people we met. We walked back to the car along the sea front, head garlands in situ,nodding and smiling at passers by - feeling pretty blooming invincible!

All in all a pretty amazing week, I made a lovely Beltane feast for my family, red wine, red onions, red cabbage, red fruit - you get the picture and we toasted a fruitful and prosperous year, I even got an unexpected 'Blessed be'!
My day however was topped off earlier, when I was at my friend Lu's House (the lady who came to Kits Coty with me), her 5 year old granddaughter was writing name labels for us all.
This was her spelling of Claire - originally I thought it said Cen, when I asked her what it said she said she spelt it out
C-E-R and said it was Care. I am going to say weird now!!
Oh and her name? It's Brooke......
Have a Blessed week )0(
