Post-Halloween Greetings! The predicted rain did not show up on Halloween night, so the Trick-or-Treaters showed up en masse! First year ever running out of candy after 2 and half hours. Some great homemade costumes and of course some very adorable little kids. And the usual teens, no costumes, holding pillow cases. Another Halloween come and gone.
Today is a glorious November morning with racing clouds and blustery winds. Leaves flying all around and squirrels scurrying for their last-minute winter supplies. I don't begrudge the squirrels all the seed their making off with from the feeders. Nor the lively chipmunks with their cheeks stuffed to near exploding size.
This is the time of year I love. The "time between time". The days and nights after Samhain; changing clocks back to standard time, the night rushing in upon us. It is like taking a deep breath and holding it until Yule comes. Sometimes I feel like the squirrels and chipmunks, as I make preparations for the long winter nights, the short winter days. Preparing not only for the cold, snowy weather and our winter holidays, but planning what is next on my pagan Path. How can I do better? How can I stave off negative energies that invariably crop up during the winter. What can I do to serve the Goddess? What should I focus on this year in my work for the environment? What does Nature need me to do? Many things to think about.
Wishing you all good things, because All Shall Be Well.
