Easter Sunday 2008
The view from my bed this morning! Snow in Cambridge!

... celebrating the joyous spring feast also known as Nawruz, Easter, Passover, St. Joseph's Day, Spring Equinox and Hilaria.

'Although we saw the first promise of spring at Candlemas in the swelling buds, there were still nights of frost and darkness ahead. Now spring is manifest. Demeter is reunited with her daughter, Kore (the essence of spring), who has been in the Underworld for six months and the earth once again teems with life. The month of March contains holidays dedicated to all the great mother goddesses: Astarte, Isis, Aprhrodite, Cybele and the Virgin Mary. The goddess shows herself in the blossoms, the leaves on the trees, the sprouting of the crops, the mating of birds, the birth of young animals. In the agricultural cycle, it is time for planting. We are assured that life will continue.'

'... the myths of the Year Gods — Attis, Adonis, Osiris and Dionysus — who like Christ die and are reborn each year. These gods are always the son of a God and a mortal woman. The son is a savior who saves his people in some way, sometimes through sacrifice. He is the vegetation, dying each year (at harvest) to be reborn in the spring.'

Happy Easter/Spring Festival for all!

Abbey equus nocte, dreamy sea-dweller!

... I pronounce it 'shi' as in 'shiatsu', japanese derivation, yes, from 'Shikishi' - a twelfth-century poet.
... as you asked ;)
