The Veil Thins
A Blessed Samhain to You All
I wasn't quite convinced about lighting a candle for him on my altar to my Goddess as he had no faith of his own, but I did and simply asked that he was greeted with love and that he walked and talked with all our ancestors old and more recent, he loved his history so I'm sure he would approve of that.
Samhain is referred to by many as the 3rd and final
|Goddess and Tor Pumpkin|
After cleaning our house, I cleansed every room with incense and asking Goddess to help us shed all the things that no longer serve us, for some reason, which seemed to make sense at the time, I did this naked, don't panic - everyone was out and the curtains and blinds were all drawn!

As I was writing this a friend posted these words on a facebook page:

How Apt. How Wonderful.
A very big thank you to all of you who have sent words of love and comfort to myself and my family this week, it is most gratefully received
