Counting Down to Day 20 - Brighid's Day

Blessings of the Hammer and Anvil to you, My Sisters and Brothers of the Flame and the Well,

We are in the final weeks of Preparation, as we prepare ourselves to embark on this great new journey as Flamekeepers of the Goddess Brighid.

We will begin our observance on Day 20 - March 15th at Sunset - when Brighid will take care and custody of Her Flame and watch over us all. On Day 1 - March 16 at Sunset, Brighid will pass the Flame to Lisa, and our first Brighidine Cycle will begin.

In the interim, I will continue to add the Flamekeepers to the mechanics of this blog, to allow each of us to post our thoughts - large, small, fleeting, profound, exploratory, revelatory - whatever they may be. I have assigned the days based on first response, and adjusted as best I could for duplicate requests. Happy to change what needs changing. There is more to be done, and it shall be done (but not tonight).

If there are others who wish to join us in this Observance of Dedication, please contact me, and I will gladly share our vision to see if we shall walk together for a while. You can see the days available. And should we exceed 19, we can begin to double up for each day. It can be an individual or a family observance - it is up to each person to determine what is best for them.

We are creating-bending-shaping something - and through that, we create ourselves anew.

Blessings of the Lady of the Forge, (for this is how She appears to me - your vision may vary)
