It has been a while since I last wrote an essay here. And I love essays. They compel you to set down and bleed your thoughts either in the computer screen or on a piece of paper. I still belong to the old school who values writing journals on paper but I love what computers can do as well.
Samhain is what is New Year to Celts. Here we put down our thoughts or even share them on a bonfire. And with that there’s a lot of music, food and drinks. I don’t really believe in excess. I am a person who should KNOW that since I lived my life in excess before. But now that’s changed. When you reach your thirties, you start to realize that you have responsibilities not only to yourself but to other people as well. You start to really live for others . In this sense you become strong. Because you have to. Other lives depend on you.
So I guess now that Halloween is drawing near, it is time to give thanks to the people around who changed our lives one way or the other. It is the time to show more kindness in a world that threatens our belief in free speech and human equality. May you all be blessed.
