Only a thin veil of scepticism separates our physical world from the mystical plains of our Ancestors. On ‘All Hallows’ Eve’ this veil is ruptured, the fabric torn and tattered, easily breached by those who reside in the ethereal world.
They hear the earthly calls from loved ones left behind and float toward our insistent cries. If you are afraid of these ghostly visitations, their mysterious non-earthly presence, then you must lock your windows and bolt the doors, drawer the curtains closed and light a candle for your protection.

HI y’all. I’ve been off the blogging merry-go-round this week with Flu#3 [or is it #4?] and work.. work.. and some more work… The flu is letting off a bit but the work promises to ramp up more from now until the year end.. So… apologies for the lack of blogging.. and more importantly… the lack of visiting your blogs… Hopefully I will get around to visit you all this Halloween week and pop in and say ‘Boo !!!’
Well the ‘Trick’ [above] may be a bit lame, but the ‘Treat’ is sure to be a crowd pleaser. You may recall I mentioned another giveaway coming up soon. Yes it is still on the cards… in fact it has just been waiting for me to get my blogging act together. So, with some luck and assistance from my Ancestors, I will be posting your ‘Treat’ real soon… this week I hope. So please don’t forget me.. even If I do seem to be ‘Off with the Ancestors!!!’

Hope they don’t mind a bit of irreverence – after all it is Halloween !!! But please dear Ancestors - don’t visit me tonight! Pehaps this little invocation of mine calls for the Salt & Sage!!!]
