It’s very cold outside. The snow is very deep. I actually have decided to do my devotional inside today. I watched a small herd of deer struggling to get through the deep snow in the woods, and I took that as a sign from my spirit allies to stay in. I was sick a few days ago and shouldn’t push myself today anyway.
To be honest, I’m ready for spring. I love winter, but I’m starting to miss things like my garden, tree frogs, toads, drinking tea by the river, foraging for food, and going out barefoot at night to hail the moon.
In the meantime, I found some new friends who are helping me get through the final stretch of the dark half of the year. I put them on my family altar to celebrate the coming Spring Equinox.
