May All Our Voyages Be Safe and Sweet

So, thankfully, our very first Vialia went well. I think we’re definitely going to celebrate it yearly from now on. If you don’t know about it yet, here’s a brief description from the Golden Trail:

The basic idea [is] simple: as the New Year starts, I should offer my prayers and gifts to the god and wights of pathways and ask for their blessing for the twelve-months road ahead of me.

Pretty straightforward.

Behold, our finished product: focaccia-like libum!  Bless the grain and the fire and the baker's hands!

"Gee, your bread smells terrific", is what I hope our Lares just said.

“Gee, your bread smells terrific”, is what I hope our Lares just said.

The feast is laid out and Hermes and the Lares Viales are invited.

The mistress of the house, lights the fire.

And the fire is lit.

And the fire is lit.

Those are wallets, yes. May they never run out of cash and coin in our voyages.

Those are our wallets, yes. May they never run out of cash and coin in our voyages.

Hail the Traveller! Hail the roadside gods! May all our voyages this year be filled with happiness and good fortune! Belated Happy Vialia!
