A four-block stretch of our street becomes a Hallowe’en hub for kids from all over the county.

The local Democratic chapter holds a candy drive
and donates supplies to the residents of the 80-some-odd houses.

So we’d been warned, but were unprepared to host—too much moving in still going on this year.

Instead I walked among 400-500 kids,

digging that autumnal, twilight, dressed-up, sugar-buzzed thrill in the air.

As we count the hours until our first house is finally bought,
we say goodbye to that chapter, hello…?

I used to joke–as an archivist of other’s pasts–that my own journals would end up at The Goodwill.
Today I discovered my undergrad/grad photography portfolio was lost to–or transformed by–a flood in my rental basement. The negatives are fine, but much of the early alchemy happened in the darkroom.
And so, 1990s, adieu!

After a lovely lecture, our friend graciously inscribed his book,
as just beyond, in Lady Wharton’s garden…

the Queen Anne’s Lace blossomed,

and other creatures got up to no good whatsoever…
