Spring midnight walk while the Sabbat is one breath away

Greetings blogfriends. How have you been? Here finally the weather is not so unbearably cold and today was an amazingly beautiful day. I mean the whole deal, sun shining, birds chirping, flowers blooming. I had a couple of invigorating walks. One in the morning and one that i just returned from. It was around midnight when i went out and one and a half hour later i had to convience myself to go back home. The smells of the nightblooming flowers and the foggy street lights were calling me, pulling me further into the night. The stars above me whispered messages of the Goddess. Spring is not officially here yet but my soul feels once again free.
The Equinox is fastly approaching and as always besides my best intentions most of the things i have planned on doing seems like they are not going to be happening. Mercury's retrograde motion does n't help of course. Neither that pagan holidays are n't recognised as such and life keeps on going as usual. I am lucky that i have my own business and arrange my time as i wish, but still chores and responsibilities make it difficult to connect in the ways i want to. Drop everything and go to the forest, sing to the birds and ground myself to the energies of the Earth and the Sun, sounds simple but sometimes it is plain impossible.
But still, i have high hopes of making wreaths, eating strawberries, plantimg a few more flowers(yes, the madness continues), meditating with the sounds of my wind chimes, having a small ritual to welcome Spring and perhaps painting triquetras and pentagrams on a few eggs.
Tomorrow morning i am going to the National Garden with Petros for a walk and i can not wait to suck all that beauty in. I would prefer to do that on the Equinox but beggers can't be choosers. It is blessed enough that the new moon is almost at the same time as the Equinox. I just love it when Sabbats and Esbats go hand in hand.
Be blessed, be loved and do not forget to breath in as much as Spring happiness as you possibly can.
