It just ain't the same. I mean tonight it will still be light when the tiny ghosts trek to my door. How can a ghost be spooky in daylight? And my witchy costume is so shabby from years of use that I rely on nightfall to conceal all of the patched pieces and cider stains. Sigh.

Well, no matter what, we are having Halloween. It is my absolutely favorite holiday. I don't have to plan a family gathering, I don't have to be sure to seat Uncle Pete away from Cousin Sadie, I don't have to make a vegetarian side dish for Leah Ann who is sixteen and turning Zen on me. All I have to do is buy a few trinkets and candy and have fun. My kind of holiday.

Two years ago I did something that I considered rather brave. I invested in a piece of art by an artist that I enjoyed and that felt enhanced my home. This week I was invited to attend a celebration of this artist who is now being widely appreciated. I was able to meet the man who created the art I appreciate and enjoy everyday in my home. It was special and invigorating as is his art.

Just sold Time to Relax! My it does come in spurts, doesn't it?

Some Success

So I won't hang it up yet. I'd pretty much decided that if no one wanted to read what I wrote, there was little reason to glue my butt to the chair everyday and write stuff. Then just as I thought "that's all folks" here comes "I am happy to inform you" instead of "I liked your story, but."

In 2008 I'll have two short stories out. Hmmm. Maybe I should get out the glue gun and put something on the page today.
