'SHADOWS OF A THOUSAND YEARS RISE AGAIN UNSEEN ... '

"I would rather sit on a pumpkin and have it all to myself than be crowded on a velvet cushion."

~Henry David Thoreau



Shadows of a thousand years rise again unseen,
Voices whisper in the trees,
`Tonight is Halloween

~ Dexter Kozen




“Men are like pumpkins. It seems like all the good ones are either taken or they've had everything scraped out of their heads with a spoon.”

I love all of this Joey, especially the one about men and pumpkins! The collages are wonderful, I can only imagine how much time it takes to put all of this together.
