A Blot Well Done

When a blot is done well, there is an intimacy that happens. It stops being just symbolic, as through the camaraderie, grounded and whole holiness, and gemutlichkeit, one really begins to feel, in a concrete way, the presence of the ancestors, and of the Gods, and the whole thing takes on an element of a big family reunion, with all the wholesome wights in the cosmos stopping by and having their share of mirth and main. And this is a good thing. A very good thing. It fills up your heart and makes you feel strong and very alive. It gives you laughter and warmth and a sense of fulfillment. One has opened up the Big Home, the Home that includes all of our smaller homes, and one can feel one's world as a sparkling pendant twirling upon the world tree, as an ornament upon the Yule fir. You carry this feeling of wholeness with you all night and into the coming days.
