Of course, today is easy. I am grateful for Halloween!
What a wonderful, crazy night—where it is said that the veil between the living and the dead is at its thinnest… thus all manner of beast, goblin and demon can cross over to this side.
And so a gourd is carved and candle lit within to ensure that all such beasts and evils stay far from the homes in which we dwell…
And we dress ourselves; disguised so that we are not recognized—mistaken for one of their own, they leave us alone.
The young promise trick if treat un-forthcoming. The foolish who “braved” were they shouldn’t have are running…
A nod to our witches, celebrating this eve—as light leaves the day and darkness doth cleave. Their celebration begins their New Year; a time of cleansing, banishing fear.
So to you all I wish you a Happy Halloween!
