My deepest thanks to all who participated in our Samhain (Calan Gaeaf) rite this past Saturday. The mixture of old friends and new created a wonderful atmosphere for our work. I do feel that Ceridwen and the great Welsh Kindreds were well-pleased with our efforts – certainly the omen sent us an incredibly positive message: that Ceridwen sees us, that she wants us to be active players in the story we live (as a Grove and as individuals), and that she promises great (even elemental) transformations for us alongside all manner of things that might bring us happiness (possibly including flying cats!). Who would argue with that?
Yes, this was a fantastic way to start our renewed journey around the wheel once and ever-always again!
