Samhain Again

Happy Halloween! I feel a little remiss this year. With all the business of moving and work, I really haven’t done much to celebrate my favorite time of the year.

One of the reasons I love Halloween so much is because it marks the beginning of November, the month I was born in, and my new year. I look at November 1 as a time to renew goals, evaluate what I’ve done and make plans for the future.

As this year sits at that pivot for me, I look ahead to a new year full of opportunity so large the horizon runs beyond my vision. So, inspired by this lovely, dark night in Kansas City that promises snow, I wrote this.

Happy Halloween everyone!
