Imbolc 2020

Imbolc is the halfway point between Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox.

With heavy rain in the Pacific Northwest, and heavy sorrow in the world,

we turn to the beauty of the Trilliums and Snowdrops

emerging through the rain-soaked earth, the Varied Thrush

reminding us it still may snow, and the enormous flocks of geese and waterfowl

beginning new migration patterns.

This midpoint of winter is a time to step into our intentions,

offer art and poetry, compassion and kindness in our troubled world.

With much gratitude for a Winter 2020 Centrum Artist Residency. https://centrum.org/
