Wishing you...

...the strength of inner light this Martinmas, as we await the return of the Light just about 6 weeks from now.

I'll be back tomorrow with pictures of this year's lanterns. The sweaters are all complete, and I'll give each its own post beginning Monday. For more about our family's celebration of Martinmas, you can check here and here. (For some reason, I didn't post about Martinmas in 2007.) For a long time, we were the only family we knew that celebrated this festival. But now lots of you have started to celebrate it, and tonight, for the first time, we are sharing a lantern walk with a group of homeschooling friends. Good things.

Oh, and thank you so much for your words on yesterday's post. Things have settled down here, as they always do.

Many blessings to you on this Martinmas day!
