Have you been feeling raw and strange lately?
I feel like my armor has been flung open and I’m urgently trying to close it again but I can’t get the clasps right.
In the midst of this, though, I feel the love of my ancestors very close to me, whispering words slightly beyond my understanding. I feel their love with me now more than ever. Any doubt I have about myself now is overwhelmed by this sense that people care for me, I care for people, and that I’m part of a great alliance of beings.
Halloween is often thought of as a celebration of death but it seems to me that it’s an affirmation of enduring love and lineage. I’m passing on that love to you and to all that will come after us.
