It's the (actual) most wonderful time of the year! Our neighbourhood is so welcoming and cheerful on halloween night, all of the children are out; and a good number of people dress up, open their doors and hand out goodies.
This year has been a mixed bag for me. I left a job I hated, the initial relief of which was quickly subsumed by the cloyingness of full time domestic life. Anxiety and depression followed, and it has only been the past couple of months I've managed to break free, hence the extended blogging break.
Autumn is a great time for fresh starts - everything is slowing down. There is time to tie up loose ends and to make new plans, to build up reserves of energy for new projects; and plentiful opportunity for eating pumpkin soup and sweets and toffee apples - so that is what I plan to do.
