Happy Halloween. We’re excited to trick-or-treat around our beautiful/autumnal neighborhood. It’ll be fun to ring all of the brownstone doorbells and see the neighborhood children in their costumes. Here are some beautiful but also spooky Halloween images and a dark little poem by Edgar Allan Poe to get in the spirit of the day. Happy Halloween!
From “Spirits of the Dead”:
Be silent in that solitude,
Which is not loneliness–for then
The spirits of the dead, who stood
In life before thee, are again
In death around thee, and their will
Shall overshadow thee; be still.
–Edgar Allan Poe

Here’s a snap of me as a hippie gypsy on Halloween when I was Henry’s age. And, here’s Henry as a ghost pirate last year and the year before as Super Mario.
