It's almost cliched to approach Beltane with optimism, but that's precisely how I find myself at this time.
There's hope in the future and a path which I can take. At Yule, I considered all that I wanted from my life. Work enough to fund travel; and a job that involved writing lots of articles.
By Imbolc, I had several options open, seeing which would work best.
By Ostara, I knew the way forward and it was merely a matter of fine tuning the most promising routes.
Now it's Beltane; and all of that preparation and energy is coming together. At this very moment of writing, I've just refreshed my traffic statistics. For the second time in a week, I've just had one thousand people reading my articles in a solitary day.
One thousand is the golden mean for on-line writers. It means that you're on your way.
I've had a couple of day-trips and, in the near future, a friend is taking me on holiday. The travel is falling into place. And are the articles paying? My Runescape ones have earned me a tour inside the hallowed Jagex Studios. That will happen at Beltane.
So yes, writing for Wizzley has brought me travel. The Beltane energy merely cut out the middle means and linked the two directly.
It feels like something is building. A life that is both bright and full of promise and potential; and that, for this festival, is exactly right.
Blessed Beltane all!
