All Saints Day, starting a month were there is an emphasis on simplifying, remembering and integrating, imitating the slower pace of nature. This is somewhat different to the current fashion of accumulating and rushing around at this time, as the main shopping festivals arrive.

The man to whom little is not enough
will not benefit from more.
Saint Columbanus, 540 – 615, Irish monk, missionary and founder of monasteries.
One is satisfied not by the quantity of food, but by the absence of greed.
Gurdjieff, 1866- 1949
