Samhain is a mirror for looking into the future
It may seem like the end of the light times and the start of the dark times, but, really, it’s just the end of October. If you want to be humourously scary and get free sweeties as per the newly-invented culture of the USA, you can be a ghost or a ghoul for a time and be spookily happy. There’s no danger in the fun, it’s just fun and means nothing at all. But If you want to review the end of this summer and the summers before, maybe long before, and the good times that have passed and to remember those who were lost this year, and at other times before, and to love and honour them just like you did when they were here, as if they were still here… then Samhain might be your thing. Bless their memory. They’re still more than important to you. Never forget them and their odd little ways and the things they did and the things they said and the way they loved you much, much more than you deserved. And for those you loved who didn’t know. And then move on to the future.
This is the time I start to plan my next twelve months, assuming I’m going to complete another twelve months. I’m thinking about it. I have ideas. I will consult with pals.
