Hello! Mother Witch here,
Thought it was about time that I used this blog to keep all you Avalonians up to date with life here at the Hedgewitch's house!
As we move towards Imbolc I can feel the stirring as the earth begins to awaken from its deep sleep of Winter.
This is not the beginning of Spring, but the awakening of the earth as the Goddess Bridgit strikes the ground with Her white rod, breathing life into the mouth of deep Winter.
Here at Hedgewitch HQ we too seem to have slept deeply, hibernating indoors, growing our own seeds of new intent for the coming year, and today as I write this the Sun is shining through my window reminding me of His power, turning the raindrops on my windows to sparkling diamonds, reawakening my soul.
My Samcat thinks he should hibernate, he is curled up in deep contented sleep, one eye opens slowly every so often to see what the weather is doing, but the sofa is a better place than the garden even when the sun is shining. He dreams of battles fought long ago, stalking through the undergrowth of our garden, his paws twitching, his whiskers trembling, then he snores loudly and wakes himself up!
May you all be struck by Bridgit's rod, and wake to the glory of Her nature as the land reawakens.
