i love these words by susan g. wooldridge in her book foolsgold-making something from nothing:
"find a way to honor who you are and who you are becoming. create a spontaneous gathering for yourself...dream what you need into being. find poems you like, songs, music. Turn a table, or your whole house into a cathedral for a ceremony for yourself. gather in a circle as humans have since prehistoric times. include earth, air, fire, and water--holy water you have gathered from a wild place. kazoos, balloons. chocolate. wine. whatever you love. do this often for yourself and each other, fashioning your own deep and wide shelter."
