Boo!


Happy Halloween! S-I-L decorated her home to welcome ghosts, goblins, and one Ipod this evening. Imaginative costumes and polite trickters made it a nice event.


Earlier, an unconventional church service had me participating in a treasure hunt which, among other things, had us counting sheep in the stained glass windows. Close inspection of the images of the land of Cleopatra and Mark Antony made me realize that our Luxor home shimmers in the light: "Memnon's" statues, who are our neighbours, appear as green men in the right-hand panel. Cleopatra, Antony, and Luxor: there are definitely spirits at work in the carving of life.
