The Thinning Veil
Tonight's the night of the thinning veil, the skin between the world of the living and the world of the dead becomes less a barrier and more a sieve. It isn't a one-way trip, either. As easily as they come here, so you can go there. So batten down the hatches and put the Ouija boards away. They need no coaxing, only honoring. Burn incense, preferably something made by your own hand, and light a candle or two, set an extra plate at the dinner table, fill their wine glass to the brim.
