One of the treats of this time of year for me is reviewing the Earth Pathways diary and wall calendar. This year I first opened the diary – to a beautiful image of one of my favourite things, a bluebell wood, with a wonderful dedication to all who care for our beautiful Earth. This is followed by pages introducing Earth Pathways as an organisation and some of the features within the diary such as moon phases, festivals and numerology.
The design of both diary and calendar is simply wonderful. It may be the colour of the art which immediately grabs the attention but the companion piece of writing is seamlessly connected and well worth taking some time to pause, read and reflect on. I also liked Nicola Smalley’s writing with some wonderful suggestions on how to explore and celebrate the eight seasonal Pagan / Celtic Earth festivals.
Designed to celebrate our beautiful Earth and “inspire a deeper relationship with the land and all of life” the A5 page-a-day diary also contains, among other features, a page-per-month calendar for 2022 and a seasonal calendar for 2022. The calendar features full page artwork, poetry and, at the back, an Astrology Forecast for the year.
The Earth Pathways 2022 Diary and Calendar are produced by a not-for-profit co-operative based in Derbyshire’s Peak District that seed funds small grass-root and community ventures – buy direct from https://www.earthpathwaysdiary.uk/. And as I always say, these make a fantastic gift but you probably will want to keep one so buy one for yourself as well!
