Many new publications, projects, products and presentations coming this year. The rebirth from the Winter Rites is cleansing, the assessment of priorities are refined in the coldness of winter. The purity of survival, the incessant stragety and planning, the timing of all the alchemical projects, the celestial agricultural plantings are humble the spirit. It is the tenderness of youth, the freshness of immortal greens poking through the frigid forest ice. Here we hone our craft as hermits, with the joy and zeal of childhood in the sacred groves.
