No matter what the (mainly western) religion, the days from 31st October through 2nd. November have a broadly shared significance. These are the days in the year in which the veil between worlds is at its thinnest and during which (depending on your belief system) the living and the dead stand closest or the “thisworlders” and “otherworlders” can almost touch, for better or for worse.

About artrites

Some people would see only a middle aged woman, albeit fairly well preserved, but in reality, I'm an English writer and artist (order exchangeable) living in Germany. I'm a blended learning specialist, graphic designer, and train adult education teachers, when I can find the work. There is far, far more to me that even that, of course, but discovering that is the journey you can undertake by reading this blog.
