Samhain found me away again this year and so, with my ancestor altars out of reach, I wound up piecing together an impromptu ritual. I was lucky enough to have a spacious windowsill and set up a few candles, some collected stones, and left an offering from my Halloween candy stash using my newly gifted tarot wrap as a base.. crafting in a pinch at its best.
This time, knowing my dad is nearing the veil, I wanted to be sure I did not pass the ritual by. I wanted to take that little bit of time honoring those who have passed through and the impending. It gave me a few moments of my own in which to feel better prepared. I’ve been doing things similar off and on of late while in the waiting stage.. I find it brings me a certain peace.
