Halloween is around the corner, and although it was not in my tradition to celebrate it, I looked around for information. Apparently, the origins go back to the ancien Celts, so it is well rooted in the UK where I happen to live right now.
Something I could relate with? Apparently, for the Celts, November 1st was New Year’s Eve, and something is dying for something else to be born, as winter is coming.
So I take it as a new beginning, and a day with mystery and magic, which I rather enjoy.
Especially with a nice desert and with a glass of wine.
At least I am waiting to see what my friends have in mind, who will celebrate it tonight and invited me over!
have you ever dreamt of a skunk? That is what happened to me last night. It was quiet a big one, the size of a medium size dog, beautiful, and I was holding him playfully in my arms. We were best friends, so to speak. I wasn’t afraid of him and he seemed pretty comfortable with me.
Now, I think that the last time I have heard of these animal is back to school, or in children’s cartoons, years ago. Not recently anyway.
So I googled the animal, and a lot of nice ideas came up. To begin with, it seems that there is a symbolism of skunks. I will adopt the information which I like better. So a skunk seems to be related to:
Skunks seem to be naturally buoyant. They go through life with a calm assurance, and exude a peaceful energy that is extremely attractive to others.
Do we have “totems animals”? I wouldn’t know what to say.
Neither do I know how I ended up being good friends with the beautiful skunk in my dream. But it was fun and I definitely need to integrate these qualities to my day-to-day interactions.
The Easter holiday is over and tomorrow I will be in the middle of negotiations, new projects and professional beginnings 🙂
