the old sage drops out on Halloween

We turn the porch light off on Halloween. Awful isn't it? What dropouts we are.'s just that we did it already. A lot. In the past. I'm starting to feel like I'm reliving the 1960's in my 60' know....turn on, DROP OUT. I'm really getting the drop out part down pat about now. (Turning on is not much of an option any more). Like, it's really nice just reading a book and not going any where. Or sitting really still in the over grown butterfly plants and watching life fly around me, instead of my flying around flapping.

So there is much to be said about becoming an old sage. You can turn off the porch light and not even feel guilty, because it's someone else's turn.

  1. I couldn't agree more...there was a time when I made the costumes, bought the candy and was "in" the holiday but no more...I turn off the light too! My pleasures are many but different and I see no need to keep hanging on to what is done.
    I so enjoy your work!

About Me

My photo
I am living and painting in the little town of Houston. A far way from my San Francisco beginnings. I paint what I see of the human condition, be it human, animal or object. The glimmer of humor, pathos, and spirit in so much of what I see is the basis of what I paint.
