For over a decade I posted personal spirit encounters as a lead-in to the Dark Time.

This year I’m lazier, and better at curating =) . Instead of spreading my posts about Samhain, the Dead Time, The Wild Hunt, deathwalking, and the Ancestors over weeks, I’m compiling all the links in this post.

In short, I hope that as those of you in the north wind down from the warm season, you will take the time to do harvest closings that you need. However you do the season, bless you, bless all in what you do, and thanks for all you do.
