It’s that time of year again when things that go bump in the night take flight and kids dress up in false horror. The costumes are works of art in themselves and worthy of a film set.
Gone are the days when a black bin sack and old cereal box on the head with two holes gouged out was the order of the day. Like everything in the modern world increased sophistication is the new norm until all folds back in on itself in some strange parody.
It’s not my favorite time of the year, Halloween. I was never into horror and ghouls and could never see the attraction in any of those pursuits. Looking at scary movies seemed the ultimate in wasting time.
Granted the evenings and mornings are now a lot darker, naturally, so perhaps it is good to mark the changing of the seasons, but in a mindful way. Even if it’s just noticing there can be a change of gear in your own energy levels.
Things slow down, not speed up. It’s good to remind yourself of this before marketers force us into a frenzied Christmas panic as soon as the Halloween masks are off.
No such panic here, just a gentle nudge to click over to the gallery and have a look at what’s on offer, and if not to buy, at least enjoy. Perhaps both?
Have a lovely day.
