"Backward, turn backward,
O time, in your flight
make me a child again
just for to-night!"

Oh what a wonderful poem! I think I remember reading it a very long time ago. But, it does get more poignant as one gets older.

I love Halloween, but no way would I want to be a child again... heck, one can have just as much fun as an adult! Happy Hallow's Eve!

Thanks Kanak ~ wishing you a wonderful weekend also. A busy one here ... Halloween party tonight then celebrating youngest son's birthday tomorrow with a big dinner party :)

... and to you, dear Katarina. A bit gloomy today ... overcast & windy, perfect for Halloween!

There is something about Halloween, Hip Chick ... I think most of us feel this way :)

How true, Monica! It's fun to discover the child within us ... Happy Halloween (isn't it the perfect day ... dark & dreary)!

Oooh... Joey, I adore these spooky image collages you've created. Perfect for Halloween! Hope you had a wonderful one. :)

We don't really 'do' Halloween over here, but I hope you had a fun time :)

Happy birthday to your son :)

Kiki said...

Yay, what a fun post! Awesome!

Thanks Kim ... yes, it was very fun. My son always has a party and the costumes were fantastic!

It gets a bit crazy, Nutty, but so much fun. Everyone seems to get into the 'spirit' ... there are as many decorations outside as there are for Christmas! Now today is my day to celebrate my son's birthday ... we're having a dinner party and I'm off to cook!

Thanks Kiki ... Halloween is a fun day/night! Wishing you a beautiful November :)

Thanks Barbee ... I made it safely through the night :) Happy November!

Ooh, very Halloween-y.
But what really creeped me out is that heavily made-up witch. Shudder.

Thanks dear Marysol ~ is that old heavily made-up witch ... me?
