Let Go

What I let go of this year was motherhood; specifically, becoming a mother. At Lammas each year, we sacrifice corn dollies in the fire. The dollies represent what we are giving up for the year, what we are sacrificing to the harvest. This year, I made my dolly holding a baby dolly. I put into it all my thoughts about birthing, my joy at holding and snuggling a newborn baby, my love of baby feet, my skills at breastfeeding and slinging, all the baby giggles and baby kisses and baby smells.
