It's that time of year again! Time for cozy evenings with friends watching cheesy horror flicks (tonight's special: In the Mouth of Madness), and making our annual horrific photograph, complete with props, a full moon, and wardrobe. Last year's project was a ton of spooky fun; Ryan and I think that someday we may be able to have an exhibition with all our years of Halloween photo projects. We shall see...

On Halloween night, we will be joining friends in Baltimore for a night out dancing at Lithuanian Hall and other haunts. What are your plans for this fun holiday?

Ryan and I call this year's project, lovingly, "Cleaver Death:"

Blog Action Day 2008

Today is Blog Action Day - a day when thousands of bloggers write about the same topic! I participated in it last year, and while I don't have the time to participate this year, I want to encourage you all to check out the site and read what other bloggers are writing about today. This year's topic is Poverty.

Happy reading and enjoy your week!

More to come soon, and thanks for checking in,

In the Blink...

...of an eye:

Your friends have children that walk and talk. They point to something in a book and speak the words to you describing what is on the page. How did they grow so fast already? They have a full head of hair and teeth! And now a baby sibling. Sigh.

You're looking at your husband's clothes hanging in the closet - slightly wrinkled dress shirts hanging in a row. Your marriage is over two years old already. How you thought about these beginning days of adulthood and marriage when you were small! Now they've arrived, and with you barely noticing. You fold socks and underwear on the bed, and put them neatly in a drawer, eyeball the little tufts of dog hair gathering in every corner of the house. You'll get to that later. Your husband pecks you on the mouth as he leaves to play tennis with his Dad down the road. You walk the dog, brush her, and do some laundry. This adult life falls into place in the blink of an eye, and're living it.
