Light In The Darkness

A cold and windy November Friday night. A gathering with friends. Stories and poems were read, songs were sung and lanterns were lit. We gathered together, our lights on their own rather dim, but once outside in the darkness they shown brightly. Some candles blew out but there was always someone there offering help to make them glow again.

After the heaviness and sadness of this week the message the universe was sending wasn't lost on me.

Martinmas (or Saint Martin's Day if you are in Germany) has always been one of  my most favorite of the Waldorf festivals. The simple beauty of the lanterns. The important message of being a light in the darkness. Never have we needed Martinmas more than we did this week. It's message  of love, kindness and compassion was so very needed right then, and will continue to be needed in the days, weeks, months and years to come.  xo


  1. Lovely lanterns my friend. One of my most favourite festivals too. xo
