What?! by EH
Mist clings to the peaks above my home conjuring up thousands of swirly, smokey, delicious memories of fall, and more precisely, October. I feel as though I could take a wrong turn and slip into an October 25 years ago or 25 years into the future. Things this time of year take on a transitional (almost magical) energy and I am soaking it up!
With every crunch of dried leaves I ache to lose myself in stomping my way around the yard. I crave the smell of baking, hot cider, and traces of wood smoke (from random wood burning stoves) floating about. In the true spirit of All Hallow's Eve I will end my month by butchering my way through a pumpkin with hope that something artistic will be revealed in the leer of my jack-o-lantern.
I am taking this newest set of spooky, ethereal goings on to celebrate the wrap up of this year of real character building growth!
