While the thoughts about my Ancestors are always present to some degree in my life, the Ancestors are increasingly present for me now as we near Samhain night. There are so many reminders – so many things that are connected in one way or many to our Ancestors! One of the most potent reminders for me is our DNA — crafted over billions of years by the struggles of literally trillions of Ancestors.
For Samhain, my son and I just finished this video, in which I explain a few of the many ways in which DNA reminds me of this connection to our Ancestors, and thus touches me deeply. I hope you enjoy it.
Blessed be – Jon Cleland Host
