on this night of endings and beginnings, please take time to hug your loved ones close. a very dear friend called this evening to tell me that her 27 year old son has just died (autopsy report not in yet, but apparently a brain aneurysm). No warning--just gone. so please, cherish your loved ones, cherish the time you have. and let us all hope that this coming year (because this is, indeed, our new year) is a damned sight better than this last.
thank you, mike, for posting that lovely samhain tribute.
