Though I like to follow Archaeoastronomy's reckoning of the day, it's good to step in stride with the Ancients in celebrating Imbolc. Over the weekend, perhaps early Sunday morning (long before Superbowl XLVII), Bennie and I will gather fallen twigs and sticks to create Spirit Dolls as demonstrated at Gaian Soul. Corn doesn't really grow here on the mountain. Using those things that grow here seems to make sense when making a Spirit Doll. It's a fine practice for attuning to one's landbase.
