Once Upon a time Long long ago in the land of the Celts February 2nd was Imbolc or Brigid’s Day a celebration of first milk. Hence Milky White from a very successful production of “Into the Woods” makes an appearance 0n Light Words today .
Historically it was a day of prophecy, purification and initiation half way between Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox. How a groundhog and his shadow became involved is a mystery to me. Looking into soulful cow eyes as a means of prognosticating makes just as much sense a groundhog watching .
Either way, cow or groundhog, continuing to pay attention to and honor nature seems to be the right path for a Planet at a tipping point.
Today could be a good day for initiating just one simple improvement to your life. It might just stick. What will it be?
