Environment: Home Fires

The devastating earthquake and subsequent tsunami in Japan are weighing heavy in my thoughts today. It's difficult to come up with something pithy or even useful when there is so many homeless and injured across the ocean from me.

I am reminded of goddesses of the hearth and home - the centers of daily worship in Pagan practice. I am fond of Hestia, the original lady of the house who kept the homefires burning. But tonight, I light a candle for Fuchi, the Japanese goddess of fire and for Sanpo Kojin, Japanese god of the hearth. May the Japanese people find warmth and the comfort of good food tonight.

So mote it be!
