    This captures the quiet sentiment of #Samhain, a time to make wishes & honor our ancestors

    Samhain (now commonly known as Halloween) is a Gaelic festival held on October 31–November 1. The Irish name Samhain is derived from Old Irish and means "summer's end". It marked the end of the harvest, the end of the "lighter half" of the year and beginning of the "darker half".

    Samhain, (pronounced SOW-in, SAH-vin, or SAM-hayne) means "End of Summer", and is the third and final Harvest. The dark winter half of the year commences on this Sabbat.

    For my Aunt Evelyn, who is dying as I write (8/23/13). May all of our Hebraic ancestors who have gone before you be there to greet you and kid you with Yiddishisms. Peace. (8/25/13). My cousin just posted this: "Tears are for the soul what a shower is for the body" - old Jewish saying. 8:45 a.m., Central Time, 8/27/13. She is truly at peace, at last.
