Once upon a time, November was a time to remember our loved ones who have died. This was part of the origins of Halloween, a time when the veil between the worlds was said to be thin, a time when we would call our dearly departed to mind.
Poet and Storyteller Margot Henderson invited people to share that 'once upon a time', again. Our loved ones live on in our memories, in the stories that we tell of them, and so we share stories of 'absent friends'.
