life as i know it

"...everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt." -Sylvia Plath

the magic of halloween

The air is brisk outside and autumn is now in full swing. The elaborately decorated jack'o'laterns sit perched with their menacing grins upon the terrace railings. Children run about, gleeful in their innocenc and excitement. Only a few more hours before darkness falls and the creative creatures of the night begin their clumsy stumble from door to door. Pirates with a sneer painted upon their chubby faces, ballerinas adorned in glittering sparkles from head to toe, hideously frightening witches with their pointy noses and broomsticks, and maybe even a miniature Superman carelessly rearranging his sock-filled muscles. And then there's the babies...the tiny bundles of giggles and coos, clothed in warm lion headdresses and round plush pumpkin suits. What a joyous time it is for children, and for those of us who love children. Even in the morning, you can feel the magic of Halloween in the air.
