All Hallow's Eve {Part II}

I must admit, I haven't really been a fan of Halloween since the days of homemade costumes and trips to the fabric store. I still remember sitting on the tall stools, flipping through pattern books, and hearing the intermittent whirr of my mother's sewing machine after coming home from mid-October school days. In college, the wholesomeness and imaginative spirit seem all but drained from the holiday. Outside be-costumed bands of tipsy party-goers pass under the yellow glow of the streetlamps, even in our sleepy corner of the old college neighborhood. But inside Apt. No. 10 it's cozy, especially by the light of a freshly carved pumpkin, decidedly autumn with it's ring of fiery maple leaves.
