Blessed Samhain and Happy Halloween!
Sunday, October 31, 2010
Our Samhain altar, in honor and memory of our Beloved Dead.
Grannie Annie (my mate's maternal grandmother, seen here with him during one of our visits north, at Mike's Place, where we'll be having the handfasting)
Katherine (REBOOTMYLIFE's daughter who died of SIDS 3 years ago - this is me holding her in the hospital in Austin when she was about a day old)
Dear friend and pagan author and leader Isaac Bonewits (I love this pic!)
And Gabrielle Bouliane, Slam Poet Extraordinaire
Please watch this.
Seriously. Don't skip it - it's important.
This was her last performance before she died in January (a mere five months after she was diagnosed with a rare cancer - she was 43).
"“Why aren’t you being everything you can be right now? Please, take it from a girl who’s already half angel. Do not wait.” - Gabrielle Bouliane
To all the others who have gone before us, who are closer to us during this time when the veil is thin...we welcome your memories.
We love you.
We miss you.
-Added after I got home - the VIDEO is GONE! ARG! It's not available anywhere on youtube! Double ARG! As soon as I can track down a copy I'll re-edit this or post another blog just for that - it's really not one anyone should miss.
