I love days like Imbolc or the feast of St Brigid, however it was derived. It reminds me that there is this "otherworldliness," that so many artists seem to be connected to. (to which so many artists seem to be connected). I really do believe that there are times when we somehow feel that we have experienced another world. It's Deja Vu or "someone just walked on my grave" or you know the feeling.
And there are places in this world where this belief is firmly ensconced. Ireland is one. Newfoundland is another. Maybe it's just where the celts are. I love the way they have preserved the magic. So often, we need an escape and they have kept the faith and provided us with one!
