Given the frighteningly eventful year, I'm inclined to be less than
thrilled with the typical contrived Hallowe'en decorations and antics. I wonder if there's an equivalent to Scrooge's “Bah Humbug!”?
Hallowe’en trappings which we normally see and are meant to frighten, pale in comparison to their surroundings. The real scary stuff lies unnoticed or undetected to the casual eye. I see a chilling scene available all year unless the snow cover does its job. In my local haunts, I see everything from invasive species to paved over greenspaces. And forgive me for thinking trees, especially, must have a target on them. Now that’s scary!
