Samain Night


Q said...

Dear Friends,
Happy Halloween~
Loreena McKennitt sings "Samain Night" from her cd "Parallel Dreams" on this slide show.
The olde traditions of the Celtic peoples did not die. They live on in the celebration of Halloween, All Saints Day and All Souls Day.
With respect for all the blessing ways may we enjoy today and celebrate those that came before us.
Thank you for your kindness.
Only treats!

Very powerful! I love Loreena too. Your pics were awesome and I really liked your jack-o-lantern at the end.
Have a blessed Samhain...
I've been invited to "read" tonight.
Love & Light

Lisa at Greenbow said...

Happy day to you too. Namaste.

Dear Marnie,
I also enjoy her style. I used one of her songs last year for Halloween too.
I like the way she writes songs about the olde ways.
Happy Halloween,

Dear Cheryl,
A dear friend came to my house this morning to celebrate Halloween with me. When she watched the slide show she teared up. The images were very powerful for her too. I am very pleased you liked this. A bit different from my regular birds and butterflies.

Dear Sue,
Thank you. I "worked" to capture just the right photographs for my Halloween slide show this year. I had fun while I was on "location" doing my photo shoot! My husband was my driver and my grip. I need to go to Ireland and Scotland to get the perfect mists.
Happy Halloween,

Dear Wendy,
Thank you.
A wonderful honour to be a reader.
Happpy Samhain to you too.
In the olde days, I read, this festival lasted seven nights. There were three before Samhain and three after. I like that. I bet it was because it took a long time to travel.
Many blessings.
Love and light,

Dear Lisa,
