      Awens to All:

      We are now a week into April which means that the Celtic Sabbath of Beltane is coming up.

      Now the Sacred Wheel is turning towards the Sabbath that is Celebrated for being the time of year that is when Trees, Plants and Herbs have their diaspora of Growth and is also exactly 6 Months from Halloween and 6 Months to Halloween.

      This Year, it comes on a Sunday. So I will be able to take off to Deep Forests for a Ritualistic Fire.

        Since people are allowed to travel once again I am wondering what is going to happen. I will probably be going outside to find out. I know that there will be some events in the socially distanced form. I don’t know whether we will be allowed to gather in groups. I don’t know whether groups will welcome visitors. There are online rituals of course, although that is not quite the same thing. Your event sounds very exciting 3 x 3. I hope that the weather is good for this occasion.

          I will know after another Week when the 14 Day Weather Forecast comes about.

          If it is good, I might pack some Gear and go off on Saturday May 1st for a spot of Camping.

            This morning, I drove out to one of my Favorite Camping Sites to have a Beltane Ritualistic Fire.

            It has an Old Xmas Tree that I found at the BC Pet Cemetery that I have recently taken up looking after and also my Celtic Buddhist Mantra as I am now giving up my Allotment Gardening at the Community Garden as I am now going a lot more Solitary with my Druidistic. Practices.

            Here is my YouTube of my Beltane Ritualistic Fire:

            It was a Nice Beltane Road Trip to my Favorite Camp Spot and back. Maybe next Week, I might do a couple of Nights Camping out there when the Weather is supposed to be much better.

                I’ve just registered so am only a few hours into being a BDO member. Great to hear about your Beltane fire ritual Dave the Druid. i recorded poems by Enheduanna, John Donne and William Blake in the forest.

                          I then went on a follow up Three Nights of Camping from May 13th to the 16th.

                          Here is my Campsite. I used my Ford Truck as a Frame to make an Improvised Tent:

                            My Campsite was the exact same Spot and Fire Ring that I had come to on May 1st.

                                We are now into April which means that the next Sacred Sabbath that is coming up is Beltane. So that means it is now time to start Planning on what to do to Celebrate Beltane.

                                What sort of things have you guys got Planned?

                                  For last year’s Beltane, I Celebrated Beltane by going to the Pet Cemetery that I have been Restoring and did some Raking and Debris Removal.

                                  Then I went to the Buddhist Temple that I always like going to and gathered up all of their Cans & Bottle Donations and Cashed them in for them raising about $72.00 for them.

                                  Then the day after Beltane, I went back to the Pet Cemetery to Mow The Grass and did some more Debris Raking.

                                  This Year, I if the Weather is Good, I might go to one of my Favorite Camping Spots and do a couple of Nights of Camping.
