Beltane, danced


This morning, much to our delight, the sun was shining and my babies felt great! I quickly set up the pole and put on some music, and asked Mariann if she wanted to put on a pretty dress so we could dance!

We took out the flower headdresses as well. Sorry no picture of me wearing mine! ahah...

Flower art from last week


Right now it's raining, I know first hand since me and Merrick went for a late walk, going to a projection of Le Premier Cri, a beautiful movie relating around 12 births happening on a Lunar eclipse day, all around the world.

I like to walk in the rain when the air is warm enough to smell. Smell of wet asphalt and land brings me all the way back to my first spring memories, thank you brain!

finally changed the snowy painting for something more cheerful...


Mariann wanted Merrick to try dancing around with us... He managed to have the pole on his forehand (it's really light, don't worry!) Light enough in fact, that Mariann carries it around in the house so she can dances wherever she wants i.e where I am.


Lots of love... but lots of frustration as well. I find it hard to cut myself in halves as they are both very needy! I can't wait for Mariann to grow up, just a little, and get out of that phase.


  1. What a beautiful, loving and sweet celebration.
    Blessings to you and the rest of your wonderful family.

  2. I can't believe I missed this post! I'm thrilled to see that even though Mariann has grown so much since I made the maypole, it's still tall enough for her. Maybe next year, too! I hope it holds together long enough for Merrick to get a few Beltane dances out of it.


Thanks for commenting!
