It is a nearly perfect Halloween tonight: sunshine, in the 60s, the trees at nearly full color that little bit of green still there that sets off the scarlet and orange. The pumpkins were easy to clean and carve and the kids were almost all picture perfect: elementary and middle school kids in costume. Despite all the horrors currently inhabiting our real world, this was an evening that felt like ten years ago: full of trick or treat, make-believe, and possibilities of a dark autumn night what is at the heart of my Halloween. The tradition lives on.
