All Hallows' Eve
There has been a light rain all day. The colorful leaves are falling frantically, and the balminess has made the air feel very close. When the light recedes the night will be dotted with Jack o' Lanterns, and a heightened awareness of the ghosts around us. The kids will eagerly go out for their tricks or treats on this all hallows eve, and we will hear their quick shuffle, wet footsteps brushing over the carpet of leaves.
"It's said that All Hallows' Eve is one of the nights when the veil between the worlds is thin- and whether you believe in such things or not, those roaming spirits probably believe in you, or at least acknowledge your existence, considering that it used to be their own. Even the air feels different on Halloween, autumn-crisp and bright" Erin Morganstern
