Yesterday evening along with members of Brython across the land I celebrated the feast day of Brigantia which in Brython we are now calling Brigantica. As I was at my parents I invited them to join with me for this celebration and it was really good to be able to share this with others face to face as well as knowing that in different places others in Brython were doing very similar things at a similar time.
This afternoon I head to Pollok Park for an open Imbolc ritual run by the Tuatha de Bridget group. That group is led by my parents and I have been a part of it since it began. I’m looking forward to seeing various folk there.
I’ve always liked this time of year for the promise of spring but this year it means more to me. My life is changing. I am forging a new path for myself and my family. It’s hard and painful at times but I believe it is the right path to take. So this year I mark the ending of an old way of life and a beginning of a new one and I look forward to the coming spring in my own life.
Wherever you are and whatever you are doing may Brigantia bless you, your home and your loved ones at this time and for the year ahead.
