Faith was kind enough to invite me over for a pumpkin carving party this year. Which was really nice because without having an excuse to do something like that I tend to just forget that it’s a holiday at all. And even for a silly little holiday like halloween, it’s nice to mark it in some way.
Faith particularly likes Fall, and I agree. Even with the encroaching darkness and the back to school feeling, there’s something nice about the crisp newly cool air and the harvest imagery.
I had to transport my pumpkin on the bus so I ended up stuffing it in my suitcase. Faith gave me a trash bag to take the now carved jack o’lantern back in so I wouldn’t mess up the insides of my suitcase, and when I opened the thing back up it looked like I had some brooding, suffocating head in my suitcase ready to hatch out. Very appropriate for halloween, I suppose.
