The Dark Trough

Color becomes eye catching in the dead of winter. It reminds us that rising to the next crest is coming. February 1, Imbolc, is the first day of Spring in the old Celtic world. From there the raft of humanity rises with the Year of the Ox and the Vernal Equinox of the solar calendar. I am hoping that the conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn indicate big events for the future of our species this years. We shall see. First we have to finish off this year in the Georgian system with Christmas and New Year’s Eve.

About johnsmithiiimxiii

John Smith, IIMXIII is the avatar of an award winning poet, artist, etc. who still lives in the Palouse country of the Pacific NW. He has not received much notice with his prose . . . but as his avatar, I hope that he keeps plugging along.
