I’ve been thinking about Wep Ronpet. For me, the day is less about doing holiday-type things, and more about quietly observing and waiting to see what will happen. I do try to make the day joyful, if not an outright celebration, but I tend to focus more on the year as a whole, and try to feel out what the coming year will bring to my life, and what it will ask of me.
New Year of course means that one year ends, and another begins. What I find interesting, is that I have felt that each year has a certain characteristic, and it seems to go from summer to summer, not winter to winter (new calendar year), or spring to spring (new growth/nature waking up).
I have memory problems, so I can’t remember all of them, but I know there was one year that was full of lost things being found, then a year of disappointments and things falling apart, then another year where everything seemed to give me greater insight, and another one characterized by constant travel and change. And it always goes from summer to summer, at which point it changes to a different characteristic.
So it seems that, for me, mid-August is when the old goes out and makes way for something new. I think I noticed this after my second Wep Ronpet. At the time I thought it was only coincidence, but it kept holding true, so it has become “the way of things” for me.
Wep Ronpet is important to me, but not because it’s a Kemetic holiday. I’m afraid I don’t give much importance to that; it’s the personal significance of the day that makes it important to me.
On a personal note, I have tried to post regularly, but have come to accept that I can’t, under the circumstances. This has been a very bad year. It’s been bad health-wise, and financially, and mentally/emotionally because of all the stress. And spiritually too; on a couple occasions I lost all hope and only my spouse kept me going. I’m afraid to be too optimistic yet, but I think things might finally be looking up. And what do you know, Wep Ronpet is just around the corner. Time for a change? I am certainly ready for it.
I hope I can increase my posting frequency again in the future, but things are still pretty bad at the moment, so I’m not making any plans yet. I just really wanted to share a helpful resource for Wep Ronpet, and now I am going away again for a while. Hopefully not too long, now that we’re so close to the change of the year, but change isn’t instantaneous, so I’ll play it by ear.
I’ll be back, though. I don’t know when exactly, but I’ll be back. This blog, leaving a legacy, is important to me.
