Your great potential
To build something beautiful and wonderful takes time and effort. Make good use of every moment you have.
You can go a long, long way. To do so, you must be going on that way every chance you get.
What you can accomplish is truly amazing. So work on it with persistence and commitment, and bring all that great value to life.
The minutes and hours of this day will quickly pass no matter what you do with them. Choose to do the highest and best with each of them, and to fulfill your great potential.
Rather than dwelling on the excuses, focus intently on the possibilities. Find great joy in the fact that you can make a difference, and make that difference again and again.
You can do great things. Feel that potential, then get busy and fulfill it.

Invocation to Boannan
Lady of the River
Wash us clean in your rippling waves.
Lady of the Onward Flow
Carry us into our future
And safely home to our lives.
Lady of the Fishes
Nourish and provide for us.
Lady who lay with the Oak Tree
And bore him the newborn Sun,
River mother, mountain mother,
Lady of clear springs and cold water
Wherein lies sacred talking fishes,
Lady whose cool hands stroke us
And whose blood flows cold
Out to the unforgiving sea,
With each sip of water we take
We will remember your name.
River go on, river go on forever
River run through my heart
(Let one who has been chosen to do the work of the ritual bring the bowl of water to each person in turn, and let them drink from it, and then pour the rest out as a libation to Boannan.)
