So I was out trolling the local craft and party goods stores this weekend and I saw the strangest thing. The Halloween goods are already starting to be displayed. Let me make this clear, I LOVE Halloween. But you see, I'm a seasonal kind of girl. I try to follow the turn of the wheel and be in the moment (or at least appreciate the moment). So you can see how this would kind of upset my balance a bit.
I'm trying to be in my Summer groove over here (which shouldn't be hard when it's 85 F at 7:30 in the morning) and suddenly I'm visually transported right into the middle of Fall. I mean completely! I can smell my Halloween candles and feel the giddy bubbling up from the tips of my toes. Instead of looking at the brightly colored flowers and supplies, I find myself being drawn toward the pumpkins and deep purple flowers! Bumble bees are replaced with bats, lanterns with cauldrons, swimming pools with mist covered fields. What's a girl like me to do I ask you?
I guess for now I'll have to put blinders on when I go to the craft store and remember that it's still June, just the beginning of Summer. Fall will be here soon enough, and with it Halloween. But don't think for a second that those Halloween images have actually gone away...
