Belated Samhain blessings to you and your kin. For a thin veil, that space between the living and deceased has sure felt tangible this week.
It has felt odd to not be producing a flower arrangement for a funeral: my grandmothers died one year and two years ago, both at this time of year. The sense of loss from their passing has surprised me, and become familiar. I hope we have many more years of marking Samhain with fire, and not flowers.
