Art and Found

After weeks of not being able to visit my favorite ‘found art’ wall in Pioneer Square I went back and found a boodle of some really great murals.

They were a little strange, a little odd.

In other words they were right up my alley!

Last year I took this picture just before sunset on Halloween.

It had been such a clear beautiful day.

I could have cried.

Where were the dark clouds?  Where was the chill in the air? Why was everyone strolling around with cold drinks in their hands?

Had the world gone mad?

Yes. I decided. Yes it had.

 

 

But this year, this Halloween is different.

The skies are dark, it’s chilly, it’s going to rain, and dare a hope for a little fog?

I do.

Here is the reason why.

I was walking through SODO with a Chinese menu ( no kidding ) in my hand when I turned down an alley and saw this:

Could it be

the Werewolves of London

have made it to Seattle in time for Halloween?

I think they have and I think they made it just in time to make it spectacular.

On Which We Live

I’ve seen some interesting things when I travel to new places around Halloween- they’re not always spooky or macabre or even a little scary.

But they do seem to have a unique life of their own.

 

 

When I try to write about the things I find,  I can’t always tell their story precisely the way they want me too.

For obvious reasons.

 

 

I will share with you right now, I am NOT one of those Dark Adventurers.

I like things like room service and spa treatments- for the most part I really am a traditional traveler.

But I like to remember to be flexible because you never know what will pop up when you’re out and about and what new things you could try your hand at.

 

One thing I learned to be true is this.

No matter where you go, how far away you fly or drive away from home.

In the end

there you are.

So be yourself and have fun.

People used to seek out Marie  Laveau and ask her for help, for advice and maybe even a little justice.

A few years ago I went to her grave on Halloween

 and left a little gift and a little request .

Go ahead and ask if it worked.

Go ahead and wonder what I asked of a Powerful Voodoo Queen

on Halloween.

I am sorry to have to say

that’s private.

It’s between me and Marie

and the other residents of

Saint Louis Cemetery on Basin Street.

A Disturbing Thought

These are all devices  were created to torture, to break, to ruin the human body.

I wonder what it was like to have created them

and sold the idea to a person who ultimately  looked at you and said-

 ” What a great idea. “

Sounds Like A Plan

So.

I have been asked.

What are my plans for Halloween?

Well.

Not much, just going to hang around with some friends.

Want to meet a few of them?

Well of course you do…I’m sure they’ll be out and about your way eventually.
