Watercolor art I recently did for a local health magazine for hiking at night. With Halloween coming up, this painting made me think of when I used to like that holiday; hanging out with my friends doing the usual trick or treating, getting dressed up and having shaving cream fights. Why don't I like that anymore? I guess it slowly started annoying me as I got into my later teens, and completely hated it in my 20s. I can't really pinpoint why I hate it. I like candy; I like making people happy by giving them candy; I like scary things, I like carving. Perhaps I should give it another try. Tomorrow, I'll look at Halloween with a clean slate. Then again maybe I just like being a grouch on Halloween.
