Oíche Shamhna

Thinking of all of my dead tonight, but especially and always my dad and my Granddad Copley, who just died this year.

The Irish believe that this night of all nights our honored dead can walk, sit, eat among us. May your meetings be peaceful.

(And don’t forget to put a bent pin in your sleeve to keep away the Good Folk!)
