Brighid has returned to the world. It is not yet spring but it is the very first stirrings of spring. The Cailleach isn’t finished yet – there are far more cycles of ice and snow still to come. The Cailleach isn’t angry nor does she fight with Brighid – both were born into different era’s and it is we humans who weave their stories together and pit them against one another. Both are dance partners on the wheel and at Imbolc they begin the slow shift, the change of partners that allows Brighid to lead the dance yet the Cailleach doesn’t leave she is still very much in the world.
