There is a beautiful post over at Terri Windling’s blog celebrating this most magical gateway in the year

  1. Peaceful Samhain to you and yours Mo.

  2. Beautiful piece of work, and the link to Terri Windling was fascinating although most people in the UK don’t celebrate Samhain in any special way, we just seem to have latched on to the commercial aspects from the States.

      Hi Debbie, Samhain aka Halloween aka the Days of the Dead was not celebrated at all in Australia when we first moved out here in 1969*, will never forget dressing up in sheets with the eyes cut out and trying to trick or treat in Kew, a well heeled old money area of inner city Melbourne with a school friend, we had no luck at all until we came to a big old mansion, the butler answered the door and told us to go ’round the back to the servants entrance where we were given two dry Sao biscuits!
      All the little kids “trick or treat” these days accompanied by their parents and the houses are festooned with witchy ghosty things which is even sillier here because it’s Spring, we live in a bi-polar world indeed!
      (* I was born in Tulsa)

    Ah, yes, Mo, I’ve just dropped my grandson at pre-school where everyone, all kids, all teachers were dressed for Hallowe’en. Not sure who or what Eddie was but he was totally in black. They looked fabulous but very different from the long ago days when I was a preschool teacher.
    That is the most beautiful statue – and your two treatments are wonderful. Happy Samhain to you and Rod xxx and Ariel! xxx
