October 7, 2021

Let’s meditate on the meaning of Halloween during this second week of October.

Halloween began in the ninth & eleventh centuries in Europe as preludes to two church holidays: All Saints Day & All Souls Day.

On these days, the Catholics prayed that the souls of all those who died will pass from death to life.  This was symbolic-  it meant  simply the passage from the “death” of an unproductive, evil existence to the “life” of a productive, creative existence.

So, Dark Friends & Colleagues, do as our ancestors did before us- make a vow to yourselves on this most special All Hallows season to spend your existence on this earth creatively & productively.

And not only during the dark months, but throughout the coming year.
