A Very Full Day
From Spark to Flame,
So brief may the distance be
Between heart and being.
In the name of the fire
And the flame
And the light - John O'Donohue
There was our friend's Imbolc gathering to bless the seeds, a labyrinth painted in the meadow with bird seed then lit with candles at night. I can imagine how happy the birds were this morning to see the ginormous feast. The uneaten seeds will sprout roots into the earth and grow.
earlier that afternoon there was a scout bowling banquet.
earlier that morning at the district derby. A boy waiting in line to check in his car sees the medals on Satchel's shirt and exclaims, "FOUR medals...I'm toast"! It was a good race, though he did not take the win.
the previous night at BINGO night at his school...where he got sugared up AND won a prize!
