All Hallow's Eve, oh holy night....but as my thoughts turn to this post, night hasn't fallen yet. Though Samhain is hours away, it feels as though perhaps the veil is thinning ahead of schedule. A low fog hovers, catching on tree branches,erasing the mountains as if they were mere figments of imagination, drifting around me like one of those ancestral wraiths seeking communion with the living once more. But no spirits come to visit, and instead my mind wanders, nebulous thoughts seeking form and being as evening draws closer. With the passing hours they begin to take shape.

We who walk this path share a gift, one known to a few other spiritual paths/religions--a spiritual new year. There will always be the horn-blowing, ball-dropping, sparkling-toast secular new year, but we're blessed with an extra new beginning, one that invites introspection and inspiration. We also get an extra opportunity to make--and make good on--resolutions, different ones perhaps than vows to reacquaint ourselves with the treadmill or be more organized. And so as the windy gloaming sweeps away one year and blows in the new, I ask myself how I can be--and do--better, how can I deepen my connection with Goddess, continue this journey of healing, nurturing and regrowing that once-fractured relationship. As darkness falls, each answer sparks, flickers and flares into being...a trio of flames lighting this moody, dark, rainy Samhain.
