Spring has been crazy green this year and very early. I spend too much time on the computer and not enough time outside, but Im outside daily taking kids to/fro school, and out with the dog.
Still, the moment I'm outside and feeling the breeze Im reminded of that link. Divine expressing itself through the natural world.
I also feel the movement of Baal the Storm God... funny how all these years as a Pagan, the semetic Deities didn't really pull me. Though I kept having a weird draw to Christianity.. not in it's current form but in some ancient form. I could feel the Canaanite underlyings in some Psalms . Could identify with El - but not Yahweh. Always felt as though an odd misplaced conglomeration was going on. I guess it was.
This Beltaine, our own group will be honouring Nikkal-aw-Ib and Yarikh. What better couple to celebrate and pay honour to at a time when we turn to the blossoms and eventual ripening of the fruits? Sacred weddings and sacred consummation.
|Zoe enjoying the smell of ..lilacs?|
|Maybe.. as we DO have lots of lilac blossoms|
|The boys playing outside the other evening in their PJ's kind of big for the toddler slide, lol but still enjoying it.|

|Little D and his first ride on a horse|
|He was quite stoic. :) Bigger D had no desire to go on a horse, so the two hour wait was for his lil bro only.|
The boys were busy playing so they didn't even really feel like they were 'waiting'. Otherwise im sure we would have been gone twenty minutes in. The girl who leads the little walk abouts with the horse was really nice and did a great job making little D feel safe.
Well, that's about all for now *cheers*!
