Samhain #4


Samhain is the time of year when the veil between this world and the other is at its thinnest. It is the end and it is the beginning, the beginning of the end, as is every day, and the closing of summer and the opening of a darkness, which is not a bad or evil period but an opportunity for rebirth, a space for memories...
Her words flew through my memory as I walked home.
And as I walked, it didn't take the thinning of the veil to reveal zombies, vampires and ghosts, some of them in very high spirits.

    I saw a similar load of scaries when I went out last night after dark with a skeleton, a witch and a dinosaur. The only one of us that wasn’t terrified was the 9 year old witch! 🧟‍♂️🧛🏻‍♂️🧙‍♀️💀🦖

    Neville, there were a lot of visitors from the other side over the last few nights. Trouble is, judging by the fact they all wanted sweets and chocolate, I'm guessing there aint no sweetshops over the other side...
    That's it, well partly it Frenchie :)
