Inspired in Oakland- Spring Equinox

Spring Equinox, when the sun crosses
the celestial equator and night and day are equal~
solar holiday- beginning of spring in the Northern Hemisphere
and of fall in the Southern.   Time to celebrate
the end of winter, of ice and decay- with momentum
sprouting all around, of turning over, breaking from cold grounds, old into new,  ready or not.   A week of rituals

could be just right… (a link for rituals.)

In Japan, shunbun no hi, or Spring Equinox Day, is observed by visiting graves and worshiping ancestors.

In England, Vernal equinox revelers hiked to Stonehenge at dawn to celebrate among the 5,000-year-old monument’s stones.

Some, stand eggs on end (which really do balance this way, sometimes- if you find the right egg.  And on any day of the year 😉

Walking through the neighborhood, I discovered this fun, brightly painted  book lending library.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Left some poetry behind for the fairies in the ferns 😉
