The Veil is Thin

from Cello Noodles, Vol. V by Betsy Tinney

subscriber exclusive


Today, October 31, is Hallowe'en, a day of trick-or-treating, costumes, and spooky decorations. It is also the first day of Samhain, an ancient Celtic holiday that welcomes in the harvest and the dark half of the year. During Samhain, the fabric separating the physical world from the spirit world becomes thinner, making communication between the two easier.

In this piece, a lone cello tests the border between worlds, and finds that the Veil has, indeed, become thinner.

May you all have a blessed Samhain and a happy (and safe!) Hallowe'en!

-- Betsy
