Samhain 2011

Who are you thinking of tonight?  Who are you remembering?  Who are your beloved dead whom you honor?  Who are your not-so-beloved dead you wish to let go?  Who are those who have gone before?  Who are the babies born this last year whom you welcome?

Among many others, I am thinking of these two elders who died this year:

Merlin Stone, author of When God Was a Woman;

Margaret Hope Bacon, feminist Quaker historian, whom I had the privilege of knowing and worshiping with.

I'm also thinking of Lynn Waddington, a beloved Quaker elder, who died two years ago on Samhain, and of her 50 Naked Stone Age Women.

Blessed be.
