This week we come to the Elvish holiday of Sovalle, The Purification. In the text we have virtually no information on this holiday, but I notice that it falls squarely in Echuir (the season of awakening, new beginnings) on the Calendar of Imladris, and in the Christian calendar, it falls just before Lent, which is often thought of also as a purification of a sort.
Self-care and self-reflection take time that it is easy to spend on other things in our busy lives. This week, try to make self-care and self-reflection (not rumination) a priority, even if you can’t make it to the events.
Make yourself delicious food, especially breakfast, if you can. Dress up a little (comfortably) even if you aren’t going anywhere. Get a good night’s sleep. If you are the type to make Lenten vows, start orienting yourself towards that now. If you made New Year’s resolutions, re-evaluate where you are. Don’t beat yourself up if you aren’t where you want to be: it’s counterproductive. Easier said than done, I know. Consider how you might be able to soothe some of the biggest stressors in your life.
Or just come to our events, if you’d rather not do any of the above. ;)
So, without further ado, our schedule:
Sunday, Feb. 26th: Start the week off with a little spring cleaning in your inventory and some deeding! Choose a ‘virtue’ that your character may be interested in exploring.
Monday, Feb. 27th: Spring cleaning take two? Meet online and provide each other a little moral support while you tackle a small real-life cleanup, or just game and chat.
Tuesday, Feb. 28th: RP! 8PM eastern. It is also Mardi Gras!
Wednesday, March 1st: Treat yourself to the most luxurious bath or shower available to you. If you’ve been waiting for a special occasion to use that nice smelly stuff… why not now?
