My post-Halloween depression is shared by a kindred spirit out west.
Kate, aka “girlfriday,” waxes eloquently (as she often does on a variety of topics) on the dearth of trick-or-treaters in her neck of the woods. I particularly like this quote:
“Packed like sardines into pre-fabricated, self-contained villages, we’re buried in gadgets designed to give us more time but we don’t seem to use it to meet the souls that live 15 feet away from us.”
I’m buried in gadgets too, and maybe it’s time I took a stroll around the block and try to make some eye contact with a few of my neighbors. I wonder if anyone else has any Halloween candy left over?
Wait, I know! I could dress like an optometrist!
Nobody would ever know…
