The name of the midwinter festival, Imbolc, comes from a Gaelic word for ewe’s milk, for at this time of year the ewes may be lactating in certain parts of the Northern Hemisphere. The festival celebrates this and other hints that Spring is starting to overtake Winter.
I plan to celebrate with a walk in the woods during the day, and in the evening an Art Opening (Joann Brennan – Managing Eden: The New Social Ecology and Tim Matthew Collins – The World Trade Center: Fallen Bodies… seems like a strange combination). How appropriate that the band, Greenwich Meantime, plays Celtic music!
Here’s hoping “Phil” sees his shadow. I haven’t seen nearly enough snow yet!
See you at Audubon’s Snowflake Festival Sunday?
