Well, my house is clean, fresh linens on the bed and the air smells faintly of Pagan Magic incense, a deep temple incense with undertones of cinnamon, sandalwood, myrrh and frankincense. I’ve been thinking about this festival … the cyclic nature of the world and how we interact with it. It seems to me that we, the human species, are a creature of habit and ritual. We love our little rituals, whether it is the hot beverage in the morning while contemplating the sunrise or whatnot … I know I am … my partner, mother and I were having a discussion Monday night about whether or not we accepted change in our lives. I erroneously said that I hated change. That’s not true. I welcome change, the change of self, of being, of living. What I don’t like is a change in my ritual … I like my creature comforts, my habits and rituals, and I don’t particularly like them disturbed. I’m not sure why this is, but I know I get anxious if my routines and rituals are upset. Anyway … blogging to share and wish you all a Joyous May Day/Beltaine!
