n the South we celebrate the deeply creative & fertile season of Beltane, this is the Mayday of our Hemisphere. Small green fruits cluster on the stone fruit, while loquats are golden-ripe. The longer evenings, increasingly warm, & the intoxicating perfume of roses & honeysuckle seduce couples of all ages into romantic behaviour!

he music & background colour remind us that in the North, this is the season of All Hallow's or Samhain. Long cold nights are upon us, as we give thanks for the lives of the dead. We purge old memories by seeking and offering forgiveness, comfort those newly bereft & still grieving and welcome the coming winter as a time of reflection & purification. We remind ourselves that, as the earth turns through the seasons, renewal eventually comes to all life.

Return to 'Welcome!'
