February 2 is the first day of spring in many traditions! I celebrated this year by attending a very beautiful service in Everson, WA — where candles were display. Typically, this was the time of year when people melted down old and odd bits of candle to make new candles — my children did this when they were younger. Here, a picture of hundreds of beautiful candles made by a friend to mark this first day of spring, and, a year full of light.
For me, I celebrated with thoughts of good cheese — here, an unveiling of a new work. New-old, if you consider the age of the molds.
