Candlemas, Distant Snake River Gorge , the South Wallowas . . . Candlemas marks
the passage of 1/8th of the Solar Year. For me, it is not so much the church holiday—
still celebrated in German-speaking valleys in the European Alps—but the
special quality of light and energy one senses around the beginning of
February. It is, in my view, the natural pendant of the 1st of November,
or All Saints'. Both are times for coming together, with concerts, poetry
and dance.
