Driving to and fro, up and down island, I noticed Pumpkins pumpkins pumpkins everywhere!
I even saw some prematurely carved into Jack-o-Lanterns warmly inviting folk from the end of a driveway to buy stacked and cut firewood. There are fields and patches, bins and decorations. I like to see peoples creative expression just exploding. Certainly there are candies and costumes out in the stores and lots of mass produced decor to be sure, but I am talking about the artistic and creative spirit. What is inside us that helps us to see driftwood pieces as a spooky bat or a stack of great round rocks painted orange to mark a driveway, inviting travelers to stop, take a break and pick out a pumpkin. It makes a mind go back to memories of their childhood. Using paper to cut almost through in even strips of orange construction paper with a little black paper handle..remember those lanterns we happily showed to our parent and younger siblings after school. A little trip to the pumpkin patch can be just the break a busy almost grown up needs.
And Why Not Take advantage of the nice weather we have been enjoying, It is phenomenal.
