I was originally going to name this song 'Morning,' until I realized that this song does not represent morning to me. It represents a beginning, but one slightly more profound.
Imbolc is the Pagan/Wiccan sabbat day that falls on or around Feb 2nd, also associated with Candlemas and Groundhog Day. To me it is the happiest time of the year, and the true beginning of spring - a time to awaken from 'hibernation' and introspection, to come back to life, and to look outward at the physical world again.
