Today is the first day of spring. In Ireland. Yes, officially. It’s St Brigid’s Day, and also the Celtic feast of Imbolc (the spring festival). This year I am opting to go for the Irish way of counting the seasons. Cos frankly, after this winter, with the darkness, the cold, the stress and the covid, I really need the feeling of hope that spring brings. So here’s hoping for sunshine, flowers and milder temperatures, soon.
Today also marks the first RAPS of 2021. It has been a long time coming – Deirdre asked me in May 2020 would I make her a pocket shrine. When I warned her that it would take me a while, and she would have to remind me every once in a while to get a move on, she probably did not think it would take this long… But finally the shrine has been made. It has already been received by Deirdre, and so I can now present it on my blog.
With a tin as beautiful as this, I did not want to put holes in it nor spray it. I left the gorgeous kiss as it was, added a bit of bling on the other side and then went in search of some kiss-worthy material.
Does anyone remember Astrov saying that?? I must have been distracted otherwise when those irresistible words were spoken. Or maybe I was dreaming of this 👇🏻?
Sorry, Rosalind Eliazar, for obscuring you… it’s just for dreaming purposes. Oh man, that #romanticherohair is doing me in! Honourable mention to the forearm tendons/muscles and the hairy fuzz.
With a bit of Astrov in the pocket, it is easier to get over missing UV in the theatre, I hope. Here’s to many a happy thought for Deirdre!
Happy spring to you all! 💐
