Is this a time of celebration for you?
Can you take a moment, and be with friends, thinking only of joy and celebration?
Appreciation and celebration of the gifts that have been given come into play this weekend. Being aware of our breath as we celebrate will open the door to the full breath of joy that is offered. This can be a space of reclaiming the energy that has been spent; this energy will be needed in the weeks to come.
Celebration is a kind of food we all need in our lives, and each individual brings a special recipe or offering, so that together we will make a great feast. Celebration is a human need that we must not, and can not, deny. It is richer and fuller when many work and then celebrate together.

The path offers a space for rebirth and the heart offers a white steed to travel upon. This tells us that forward movement is more than possible, forward movement is necessary, and the transportation needed comes from what is felt deep in the heart. This promises to be brilliant and uplifting, for the most part. There will be shadows coming into play as well, the shadows are also part of forward movement, and must be acknowledged and even celebrated.
Times of solitude are an element of this forward momentum as well. Finding space to clear the head and sort out what thoughts are our own and what thoughts belong to others. Some of the connections that we hold so dearly come into our minds, emotions, and thoughts so clearly that at times those connections may seem to be us. Discovering our own words will bring a deeper meaning to the forward momentum that we may enjoy this weekend.
Be assured that there is quite the abundance promised this weekend. Our cups will overflow with all the wonder, beauty and joy we may desire, and also perhaps some shadows as well.
As the rain sings to me, I offer you this mantra:
In celebration I dance
Surrounded by friends
Seeing clearly the changes ahead
I ready myself for a wonderful ride
