Well, here it is…Halloween, again. I am at home on a crisp morning with Bella, chocolate croissants, and coffee. It isn’t the same this year. Halloween was the best when i was in Nashville with old, good friends frolicking in graveyards, drinking vampire merlot, and carving pumpkins to “Nightmare Before Christmas.” This year, i am less excited. Could it be i am growing older and the spell Halloween has always cast on me is losing it’s power? Or do i just miss my old life, old friends, and old haunts? Growing up is hard. Living in a city you have yet to connect with is hard. Missing those you love at a time that you have always held so dear, is even harder. I wish i had all the money in the world. Not because i think it will bring happiness, but so that i could jump on a flight whenever i wanted and see the people and places i miss so much. Why is it that i am never content right where i am? Is it the nature of your 20’s, or is it because i have made a series of wrong decisions that i should now make an effort to change?
I will probably spend my day at the free SAG theatre or hanging with my friend Channing who just had a baby. She needs a friend right now and maybe a hand with laundry. I hope everyone has a fantastic Halloween and that you are spending it with great friends. Happy trick-or-treating!
