the cheat

Today the stores were full of Christmas decorations.

This year I didn’t mind, it’s nice to have something else to think about, something  else to look forward to, something to be excited about.

But I did feel bad because this year I feel like Halloween was outshadowed by truly horrific  events and monsterous people indulging in endless dark and despicable behaviors.

Carving a scary face into a pumpkin and hanging my favorite skeleton out on my porch seemed to pale in comparision to what I saw on my tv each night.

I’m looking forward to the Winter Holidays, but there’s a little voice in my head that’s upset that Halloween took a backseat to reality this  year.

I hope against hope that after Tuesday that the dark reality we have been plunged into for the last four years  is no more and one with more promise takes it’s place.
