Coming Down the Homestretch

Ohhh! My aching feet!

Dancing was good, and I lasted long enough to get caught in the rain. Hurricane Patricia put in an appearance late last night and finished here a few minutes before 5:00 p.m. It was warm, thankfully, and so the Full Moon was well celebrated.

Today, though, felt as if I should be a little quieter.

Since it was a rainy day, and because this is a holiday that resonates with reminiscences, I broke open some old poetry books that had belonged to my dad and looked up Halloween. There were a few children’s poems that I remembered from my childhood and that I had shared with my children. Once I had poured over those, I turned to my cache of Llewellyn’s Magical Almanacs. There are many fine articles in those about the upcoming Samhain holiday. Altogether, it was a quiet, but pleasurable evening.

The 31 days of blogging as a spiritual discipline is quickly coming to an end. I will probably keep up the blog for a little longer, for the local Spiritualist Shrine (church) is devoting part of their Sunday service to the Day of the Dead. The night is growing longer, and we change time on Saturday. Changing the clocks between Trick-‘o-Treaters is a challenge, but one worth taking. I will also be doing some baking on Saturday. Sadly, we rarely have children come around for candy here (no sidewalks, no street lamps, etc). I may even get in some homecooked meals on the big day.

I will be dressed for the Holiday, of course, children or no children, and, yes, I will be a witch. I can remember walking around the neighborhood with my dad when I was 5. I was dressed as a princess and there was snow on the ground. In case you were wondering, witches are warmer.

Be safe, my dearies! Have a wonderful Holiday!

Blessed be!
