    Almosr Ostara

    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."
    ~~Stephen Jay Gould, Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    Re: Almosr Ostara

    A couple of years ago at an Ostara get together the person that led the ritual had a couple of games and activities she put together for after our potluck. This one is kid friendly.

    She took and hard boiled a bunch of eggs. Took a clear wax crayon and put runes on each of the eggs. So when we colored the egg we picked out, it showed the rune. She had a sheet that had the meaning of each rune on it so we could read what our egg meant.
    I thought it was a cute idea.

    If you like your sabbats a bit wild, why not try 'egg roulette'. Hard boil a bunch of eggs but one! Players take it in turns to smash an egg on their head until someone gets a dose of natural hair conditioner! You can use the other eggs in a salad so it's not too much of a waste.

    I got this idea from Celebrity Juice btw.

    That is really cute! My daughter's b-day is actually the 20th of March, so we always do an egg hunt--that would be really fun to do.


    ...and lol Jembru, I'm not sure about that one, but visualizing it is at least amusing!

    I don't think we've ever made a special meal for Ostara, but I think this year I might do a really nice green salad and ask the hubby to make a quiche. Then you've got your new growth and your eggs. Followed with easter candy for dessert, of course.

    You are correct. The bunny meatloaf could only have been made more epic if it was made of real bunnies. LOL
