Four Seasons fill the measure of the year; There are four seasons in the mind of man.
—from “The Human Seasons” by John Keats
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven…
I was inspired to create Around the Year after spending a good deal of time learning about, and incorporating into my own life, the yearly cycle of Christian feasts, festivals & holy days, in concert with attempting to develop a more intentional relationship with the natural world. This practice has enriched my own life in such a meaningful way, and I wanted to share what I learned with others so that they, too, could experience renewed spirituality and an appreciation of God’s creation in their own lives. Around the Year is a place to learn about a different way of experiencing time than that which exists on the clock or your smartphone. Here you will find crafts, recipes, activities, and ideas inspired by nature’s progression through the four seasons, and the Church’s movement through the Christian year. New content is added throughout the year.
Gloria Patri, et Filio, et Spiritui Sancto. Sicut erat in principio, et nunc, et semper, et in sæcula sæculorum. Amen.
(Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning, and now, and always, and to the ages of ages. Amen.)
