“Do you know," Peter asked, "why swallows build in the eaves of houses? It is to listen to the stories.” ~ J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan


. . . the moon howls

There are nights when the wolves are silent
only the moon howls.


  1. OH my gosh!! Did you write that? May I quote you?

  2. As they say, you are a hard act to follow! I took some photos tonight, but they will not undergo any Photoshop magic or anything. But, I shall muster up the nerve to post them!

  3. Hope you are having a wonderful Halloween night deep in the trees. Is it quiet enough out there to hear the moon howl?
    I bet not!


  4. Michelle - I didn't take a camera!

    Relyn- No, it's not my quote. I wish! The internet attributed it to George Carlin. I don't believe that; I think it's one of those millions of things the internet says he said that he denied. So I didn't list an author. Use it as anonymous. :)

    Paula - This is just the Emma Tree, dressed up for Halloween, then run through the computer. I knew I wouldn't be taking pictures later!

    Jaime - Well, possibly on the hayrides deep into the woods, where ghosts were hanging & a man leaping at us out of the dark with a chain saw, but with all the screaming & laughter, who can say?
