I'm sick, too! Nothing like an infection - just a cold. But it's bad enough and I'm coughing and sneezing and complaining...but the last is nothing new.
Maybe you guys could try meditating. I tend to do that before or after rituals that I do. Light candles.
And REST! Drink lots of water. DayQuil is great. Ricola is even better - if you get the kind with Echinacea. Watch out for possible allergies, though. Check with your doctor.
I don't think you have to do anything big to observe Imbolc or any other holiday, so don't sweat it too much.
what if everything around you
isn't quite as it seems?
what if all the world you think you know
is an elaborate dream?
and if you look at your reflection
is that what you want it to be?
what if you could look right through the cracks
would you find yourself--
find yourself afraid to see?
what if all the world's inside of your head
just creations of your own?
your devils and your gods all the living and the dead
and you're really all alone
you can live in this illusion
you can choose to believe
you keep looking but you can't find the woods
while you're hiding in the trees
