And I noticed how glum I have been on the blog during the last few months, and if not glum then overly neutral. The reason, my friends, is in the stars. *
Well, not in the stars as such, but partly in what's happening (ISIL! Ebola! Climate Change!), partly in my own battle fatigue (as in: "haven't I already written about this struggle some time during the last eleven years?", and: "did it make any f***ing difference at all?"). Yes, Virginia, sometimes I'm a pretty egoistic goddess, hoping that what I do matters more than a hill of beans in this crazy world.
To return the ball to the home plate (I'm trying to cram this post full of incomplete quotes, bad similes and so on), I can't think of anything to write about the politics of Halloween costumes that I haven't already written.
*And also "Into Each Life Some Rain Must Fall" because I've been coping with some family health problems which are finally clearing.
Added later: Something completely new for Halloween
