Howling

The month of February brings the celebration of Lupercalia (lupus which is latin for wolf) which was an ancient festival of purification for health and fertility in preparation for the rebirth of spring.

I hail, at least partly, from the Hirpini Tribe, the People of the Wolf, in Southern Italy. Much like wolves, we gather together to howl to let others know how we are feeling. What is our common cry? Are we howling in pain? In joy? In triumph? In support of one another? I suspect it may be facets of all of the above.

Look into the deepest part of your being and lay bare all that needs to be witnessed so you may find the hidden potential of your own life-force stirrings.
