On this night, the veil between the worlds is thin, allowing spirits to cross over to other realms, to connect and communicate. It is a night we honor the dead and our ancestors as they walk among us. A night we seek to understand what is on the other side that seems hidden from us. For some of us, who walk on the edge of worlds most days, tonight it seems as if the rest of world can experience what we know deep within.
We can look all around us and see the fields cut away, the trees bare or shedding and the darkness growing each night. Dead and death prevalent in our thoughts and rituals at this time of year.
Tonight in the darkness, in the quiet and in the stillness, listen for the whispers and look beyond the veil.
