Harriet Hexagone

Uh-oh!!  The other day we saw a new face in town.  Upon discrete inquiry we found that her name is Harriet Hexagone.  She is an 'official' sent to Lickety-Split by the "Association of Witches Against Hex's" or AWAH for short.  Apparently word has gotten out that Hilda Hexington is practicing spells in her backyard.

It seems that the AWAH carefully licenses those who are allowed to bring about hex's and Hilda is definitely not on the list.  Its certainly a relief to the folks in Lickety-Split as many of them were staying awake nights worrying.  Of course when Ms. Hexagone sees Hilda's list she might just break down and approve a few of them.  After all, most of us have had the unhappy experience of being on the other end of the phone line from 'customer service'.

"Witchcraft was hung in history.
But history and I
Find all the 
Witchcraft that we need
Around us everyday."

Fall Fun

This illustration makes me happy.  I'm sorry that I can't attribute it to its rightful artist -- but I did want to share it with you.  This is such a wonderful time of the year for me -- heavens I'm even happier than I usually am and that's going some.

Hope you are having wonderful Halloween/Pumpkin/Crispy days time this month.

"On such a day each road is planned
 to lead to some enchanted land, 
each turning meets expectancy.  
The signs I read on every hand
 I know by Autumn's wizardry on
 such a day the world can be
 only a great glad dream for me -- 
only a great glad dream for me."

Hilda Hexintgon

After retirement Hilda read a book about witches -- I think it got stuck in her library stack by accident, but I'm not quite sure.  She at once decided that she would become a witch.

She had read about good witches but that seemed a bit boring.  So Harriet decided that it would only be fun if she could place hex's on those people who annoyed her.  Oh so many were written down on her list.  You know the ones -- the newspaper delivery that ends up on the roof, the cold food which should have been hot and moving toward the top of her list -- the customer service person on the other end of the line (we all know that frustration).  

The list could go on and on.   But I think we're all pretty safe for now as Harriet has been so busy compiling her 'Hex' list that she hasn't actually learned how to do a hex.  Time will tell...
"A nasty old witch on a broom
On Halloween night she will zoom.
She'll appear in the fog
Turn you into a frog,
So you'd better stay home in your room."

Red Leaves

These are the first Autumn leaves I've found this year -- found in the middle of September but I'm just now getting around to showing them what with one thing and another.

I remember the day -- it was cloudy and I was surrounded by green everywhere.  Looking down at my feet I spied a red leaf, laying there in all its glory.  I looked up but could not see where it might have come from - probably blown away in one of our rainstorms.  A little bit later I found another deep red leaf.  Could this be an omen of a beautiful Fall coming our way?

"October is the fallen leaf, but it is also a wider horizon more clearly seen.  It is the distant hills once more in sight, and the enduring constellations above them once again." - Hal Borland

Flying Away

This is me (well an imaginary form) flying off once again to the desert - family - much joy - laughter - fun.

I'll be back soon, until then please feel free to carry on without me... *smile*.

"Flying dreams mean that you're doing the right thing with your life." - Douglas Coupland
