Lammas 1st of the Harvest Festivals
When people gather together to celebrate the grain harvest, to celebrate and reunite with familly and community. When couples come forward to be bound for a year-and-a-day before being bound together, for life or for lifetimes.
A respite from hard work, and a celebration of the work accomplished.
I have pulled back from the church, and have not found very many in my local community to become close to… and yet I have friends, I have familly, and I have community. Not all close by, but they are out there and it is not as if its so difficult to reach out a hand of friendship…to throw them a line of communication as this holliday approaches.
I know in my own life that fighting my own fears… fear of rejection, fear of failure, fear of being hurt… has been my biggest obstacle. It took a long journey for me to learn to trust in my instincts and to build a good library of experiences. Now its time I took a few pages from that library and reached out to some important folks.
I hope in your own journeys you can find the path through your own obstacles and learn some wisdom and some strength from your journeys.
