HAPPY HALLOWEEN! I view this holiday primarily as a New Year celebration, in the ancient Celtic tradition of Samhain (said "sow'-in" if I recall). However, I wish I had the energy to do up the all black witch costume I have in mind (I'd leave my long white hair loose and un-styled, a frightening sight by itself). But then that would also mean actually going to the party here in our retirement community. And that I really don't have the oomph for, especially my joints which are not at all that pleased by the change of season. Anyway the above photo is a re-visioning of another very old picture and is called Halloween Howl (7-11-09).

This one below is called Maw of Winter (7-11-09) and is the same photo with another filter applied and colors inverted. I think it's a more "successful" effort than "Halloween Howl," even as it rushes the seasons.

And both of the above were made using this version below, Balancing the Load (7-11-09), just posted yesterday to my dreams & poetry blog:
