Month of October– penetrable is the shelter;
Yellow the tops of the birch, solitary the summer dwelling;
Full of fat the birds and the fish.
— anon. Welsh Poem
October is always a fun month.
“It sees the last days of autumn and the presage of winter. The themes of this month are the ordinary and the extraordinary, conflict and consensus, adaptability and renewel, combat and competition, the work of women, the reality of joy.”
It is also a month to begin thinking about the Ancestors.
Their stories, lives, and loves.
October is the month for spirits afterall, and you can’t leave out Meme or Pepe out of the festivities. Because, really, they’ve been patient and waiting all year.
