It's the last day of summer...

There’s a chill in the air, the children are back in school, and the swimming pools have all closed.  Now instead of looking forward to picnics and the 4th of July there are Halloween costumes and even – gasp – Christmas decorations in some stores (they are ridiculous with how early they put these things out!) But it was fun while it lasted to ride the carousel and wave to your loved ones as you rode round and round. 27 more words

October, October, October!
My favourite month of the year!

Not only is it Halloween Month, it’s the month in which American Horror Story returns!

On a frozen beach at the beginning or end of time...

On a frozen beach at the beginning or end of time: distant murmurs of a carousel on the next pier. No children but ghost children sit on the painted ponies- mint green and rose- chipping and faded. 78 more words
