The Coming of Spring and Easter March 17

DSCF2834-Detail of a Celtic Cross Necklace

As I took the photograph for this St. Patrick’s Day blog, I was curious to know about the designs on my Celtic cross. I was delighted to find out that coloring Celtic knot templates, or designing one’s own patterns, is a popular new way to meditate and reduce stress.  Follow this link to find out about the the design of Celtic knots, as well as some templates to color.

Here’s an anonymous prayer for the day:

I arise today
Through the strength of heaven;
Light of the sun,
Splendor of fire,
Speed of lightning,
Swiftness of the wind,
Depth of the sea,
Stability of the earth,
Firmness of the rock.

-Anonymous Celtic Prayer

About the author jmankowsky

I live in Central Massachusetts in the United Stares, where I have recently retired from public school teaching after thirty-four years. I am a nature photographer, particularly focusing on the the wide variety of birds to be found in this area. I am a keen supporter of the Massachusetts Audubon and the exceptional work that they do in education and protecting nature. It pleases me that many of the photographs I have posted here have also been displayed on the Wachusett Meadow Audubon in Princeton, MA website. I would love to connect with other primary school teachers in the hope that these photos might be useful in inspiring children to a greater connection with nature.
