Well, it's finally here. Halloween. Samhain to the ancient Celts. It marks the midpoint between the Autumn Equinox and the Winter Solstice. A dark time in the northern parts of the Northern Hemisphere. No wonder they marked it as a time when the dead were said to walk the earth for a night. I'm glad the Medieval Church set it aside as the Eve of All Saints' Day, a time to remember those who have gone before us, and to think on their legacy to us. So that's what I am doing, as I look into my family tree, I am remembering all the things my ancestors have left to me. And I'm looking for ways to pass this legacy on to my children, the next generation.
