This Way Comes...

Reading it right now, and it's a bad book to be reading, this time of year.

Not because of what it says, but because of what it does.

It makes you want.

Want those crisp October nights, so long ago, when it was you out there, scared and wanting to be scary,

When the air was so crisp that everything you saw had a sharp edge of magic to it--and everything you couldn't see has a delicious scent of menace.

When gnarled trees scratched and grabbed at dark skies while you rustled loudly through dry, crunchy fallen leaves.

The smell of candy, of burning pumpkins as jack o'lanterns scuttered away the night.

And we all feel it.

That's why we set up our little pieces of darknesss, why we put on the makeup and dance the skeleton dance, why we thrill to each scream...

Every shudder, every skipped heartbeat, every cringe means we're a part of that dark.

We make those nights into the ones we remember, we create that dark magic and give our bit back to the darkness of October.

Always remember what you are.

You are Halloween.
