Introduction to Episode

In this episode, I discuss Beltaine – a pagan fire festival. I share some things I have noticed over the seasons, what makes this time of year different from others, where we came from, and what we can look forward to. I also bring up the aspect of the God and Goddess and as it relates to this time. 

As stated, the wheel of the year. A symbolic representation of how the we honor the sun, the stars, and the seasons.

Sidewalk chalk art – this is one way I express my passions for creativity. And, in this way, I am honoring our seasonal transitions and honoring my need for creativity.

More sidewalk art. This was May 2016.
