Samhain (Halloween, All Saint’s Day, All Soul’s Day, Day of the Dead) is not just a day, or just a weekend, it’s a season. A season to remember, to clear, to mourn, to feel, to shift, to grieve, we will be different people just a few weeks from now just as the Earth is different. An appointment with the ocean called me away, but the veils were the same. Home again and Samhain will continue to be celebrated in my home. Memories, stories, crafts and food (dead bread and savory soups) will carry on.
Don’t let the “holiday season” knock you off kilter, slow, breathe, yawn, stretch and even find some revelry. Do not get so busy you forget who you are or who and where you’re from and who you want to be.
