Eve of the Roman Tridies

Tonight is the Eve of Feralia, a festival in honor of the dead.

Thursday is the Charistia, a festival in honor of making peace with neighbors.

Friday is the Terminalia, the festival in honor of year’s end, and the rethinking of boundaries.

I invite you to do with this information as best suits your needs, your love and your will.

  1. All of these apply in my life. Some I have already done, some I need to keep working on.

    There comes a point where I find difficulty making peace with people who don’t seem to care about what’s gone on and whose feelings got hurt. I try to be above it, and it’s so difficult when you feel wounded. I keep falling back on that tired excuse that I feel like I’ve been apologizing for things that aren’t my fault all my life, but it’s really no excuse. That was then, this is now.

    Too much love, too much need, too little will, but trying hard.

    Thank you for making me think.
