Halloween is tomorrow. It kinda serves as the unofficial beginning of “the holidays.” The stores around here began holiday prep during the dusty last days of August (why do they continue to go there earlier and earlier?).
I will be away this year on Halloween. Although I live in a neighborhood ambitiously dedicated to giving a fun Halloween experience for “the children,” I am feeling a little to ghastly this year. So I will be in quieter environments.
And that is ok.
In the eloquent words of Jason Tippets:
“At some level my aloneness will travel with me as a companion; we will be friends and live life together because I can only embrace it. Alone is not bad—it’s just different.”
Happy Travels this weekend,
