The Between is Breached

“Tell me, minions mine, what news from the Border, what word from the Threshold, what whispers from the Between?”

“O Mistress Most Magnificent, tonight is the Night: the Border opens, the Threshold is crossed, the Between breached. The cards so pronounce, the runes declare, the moons of nether shine upon the Door.”

“Witness then, my vicious vouboos, witness and rejoice: it is time to summon spirits to wander the waking world. Upon my call they shall come, my words they shall heed, my will they shall follow. The mortal world shall feel their presence as they walk its streets: truths among lies, surreal realities amongst disguises, hidden in plain sight. 

Each step they take draws shadows from human hearts, each inhale of stolen breath drains courage, each bastion of rationale besieged by doubt, assaulted by belief older than this newly-found love of facts.”

“Their hearts fill with dark whispers and undeniable certainty that there is something near them: behind them in the room, in the dark corner of the street, under the bed, just out of sight but so certainly there they can hear the breath that is not drawn. Their hearts become ours. This night, this night when the Between is breached.

This night they know that underneath the fairest of Ariels lies Caliban awaiting. This night the nether realms are empty, for their creatures all walk amongst you.”

Magnificent masquerade this Halloween: keep your eyes open, pay attention to the corner of your eyes. Who knows what you might see.

Calling the Celebrants

touch-of-blood-4bs

We have been invited. Every year the invitation arrives, every year the curtains are drawn aside to reveal doorways, every year the Sound of Life rings in our silenced ears once more. It calls, it beckons, it pleads. Just like it always did. Just like it always does.

touch-of-blood-2bs

Each of us celebrates the return to the Land We Once Walked On. Some of us simply step through, others sail in with more impressive means, some slink and slither, some arrive with a bang. Some run through the streets screaming, some hiss softly in the passing October breeze.

touch-of-blood-1bs

It does not matter how we celebrate, what matters is that we all do. For one night, one glorious night a year, all the chains are broken and we are free. Free, and dancing amongst you.

Waltz with Lost Spirits

It is the night of celebration, the night of festivities, the night of freedom. The doors are open, the portals calling, movement from one realm to another as easy as breathing: even for those who do not draw breath anymore.

halloweenbride1bs

The music twists within like a golden spiral of dance steps older than time. Left, right, across the border of reality into another, hop to next one, shapeshift, disguise, mold, become: dance.

halloweenbride2bs

It is the night when everything is normal and accepted and one can ride skeletal steeds through ballrooms, the night when one can waltz with lost spirits and indulge in the sensation of flesh once more.

halloweenbride3bs

It is the night when we all dance, we creatures of grey realms, celebrating the return of flesh and spirit once more. This is Halloween.

What If?

It is the night for dark secrets, mysteries and myths. It is time for imagination to dwell in all the frightful spots at the back of your head, indulge in the startles, channel your mundane concerns into the fear of unknown and improbable, with that faint little voice within asking ‘what if?’ 

bloodhostess2csIt is time for delicious treats, delicious thoughts. Make your fears tangible, taste them on the tip of your tongue, reach for more, find ways to combat them by becoming one yourself.

bloodhostess3csTake comfort in the knowledge that soon the visitation will be over and everything will be back to safe normalcy: all the monsters will be back under your bed or in your closet, haunting you only in the moments of your weakness.

bloodhostess1csBut for now, tonight: dance with demons, inhale the fear, let the quiet what-if whisper grow into a roar: What if it is all true? Why couldn’t it be? After all, This Is Halloween.
