Energy surrounds us all the time. But around Halloween, we're even more aware of it. Who hasn't heard something go bump in the night when there is no logical explanation for the noise? After a loved one passes, have you ever felt their presence? On an important occasion or maybe on a holiday? Love is energy that never leaves us and I think we go on feeling it throughout our lives. I have an antique chest that belonged to my mom. Every time I pass it, I remember my childhood and the house where I grew up. Every once in a while, it seems to give off a scent that can take me back there in my mind...and in my heart. When it does, it seems to be at those times when I need the touch of my mom's hand on my shoulder the most.
Halloween stirs up the pot of ideas beyond our usual realm. Maybe that's why some of the images surrounding it are so macabre. But "Halloween" means "all-hallow-even." Maybe it's simply a night to celebrate everything we don't understand and everything we wish we did!
