A Quote by Michelle Skye on cerridwyn, dream, goddess, magic, movement, rebirth, renewal, solitude, space, time, winter, and yule

Cerridwyn is one of the most magical of Welsh goddesses.  She is the quintessential stereotypical "hag witch" -- hunchbacked, cackling, stirring her cauldron full of magic potion.  Yet this image is but one side of the great goddess Cerridwyn.

Cerridwyn is also a mother, to a dark boy named Morfran and a beautiful girl named Creidwy, and a wife to the giant Tegid Foel.  Her family means a great deal to her, and her magic stems from her need to help them.  She seeks to protect her family, to remove obstacles on their paths.  Like all good parents, she wishes the very best for her children and strives to provide for them.  No young, virginal maid, Cerridwyn has the resources, self-confidence, and inner power and wisdom to forge ahead and aid her family members.

A Quote by Lucille Clifton on renewal, growth, new beginnings, birthdays, and new year

i am running into a new year
and the old years blow back
like a wind
that i catch in my hair
like strong fingers like
all my old promises and
it will be hard to let go
of what i said to myself
about myself
when i was sixteen and
twenty-six and thirty-six
even thirty-six but
i am running into a new year
and i beg what i love and
i leave to forgive me

Lucille Clifton (1936 -)

A Quote by Corrie Woods on retreat and renewal

Retreat: a place and time for you to get reacquainted with you; the ebb in ebb and flow; a solitary sanctuary for renewal; a safe haven; a snug den, a refuge.

A Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin on love, love-making, renewal, awareness, living, and life

Love doesn't just sit there, like a stone, it has to be made, like bread; re-made all the time, made new.

A Quote by George Elliot on suffering, regeneration, renewal, and being

Deep, unspeakable suffering may well be called a baptism,  a regeneration, the initiation into a new state.   Suffering can be likened to a baptism - the passing over the threshold of pain and grief and anguish to claim a new state of being.

George Elliot
