279/366 All Souls Night

It has been raining off and on all day and tomorrow promises to be more of the same, so I haven been rustling around in the Halloween box to see what I can find.

And this is a Croc-a-Jack? Jack-a-Croc? Jack-Gator? Halloween-o-dile? from a Southern folk artist.

And how should we break faith who have seen
Those dead lips plight with the mist between,
And how forget, who have seen how soon
They lie thus chambered and cold to the moon?
How scorn, how hate, how strive, we too,
Who must do so soon as those others do?
For it’s All Souls’ night, and break of the day,
And behold, with the light the dead are away.

–from Edith Wharton’s “All Souls”

    • Ha! That is a good one-one of the most inventive (for me and on the fly) ones that came up with was draping a long white scarf and going barefoot as Isadora Duncan-it was a party of theatre people and fortunately, most of them got it-I think that was the last time I dressed up other than showing up with a dime-store mask- Thanks for looking Donna!
