Far From Home

With agonising slowness, the veil thins. Every passing year the passage of contact between the spirit world and the living becomes denser, harder to push through.
Even now, on Winters Eve when the veil is supposed to pull back more easily, communication is stilted and sluggish. Few of them come nowadays though I practise the rites each year.
I have often wondered if it is because we Celts have spread too far throughout the world. Too far from the ancestral home of our ancestors and the Faerie.
Are we pulling them apart by our distance? Or is it because so few believe anymore?
They are questions for another time. I hear them coming, finally. I greet them with honour, joy and the respect they are due; and secretly worry that perhaps next year, none shall come at all.
