Samhain. by OneForTheFence Samhain. by OneForTheFence
A bit different from the current mode of posts, eh?

Because I've been going on in this Beltane bit, I was pleased to find a picture taken this past Samhain, or Halloween in standard language. Samhain is the time when (in pagan tradition) the spirits of those who have passed are closer than usual to the living world, which is why it came to be called All-Hallows Eve and then Halloween. I'm not being scary or "gothic", I was just happy to find this picture. Not only is it suitable, it's also nicely spooky.

I'll take another around midsummer for Lughnasadh.

You were right, this is FRIGGIN' SPOOKY.

I'm too lazy to follow the Wheel precisely, and can't claim to pronounce much of anything correctly, but...

Imbolc-ish, plz?

I love Samhain, but I guess I keep celebrating it straight through Yule and Imbolc. Whatev.

Yes sir, those will be up when the time comes around. I have another nice tree picture titled "Beltane" taken during my regional Beltane festival. I'm not precisely Wiccan or Druid or any straightforward sort of pagan, but there are parts that I feel are very important. (Spiritualism FTW.)

It's nice to have something sullen and unhappy from you. You do it so well.

Even I would consider that comment dubious at best. :/
