If you get scared, we can always hold hands...

...I have a box of them in the cupboard.

This selection of a painting by Breugel the elder was a favorite of mine as a child

Something else that I loved as a child was a Halloween poem. When I moved to NY I learned from the Mason's that it was a song as well. Now it is something I always sing at Halloween:
Have you seen the ghost of John
Long white bones with the flesh all gone
Wouldn't it be chilly with no skin on?


  1. Doesn't every young child love Breugel?

  2. I'm not, nor have I ever been a huge Breugel fan. Though I completely respect him as an artist because he was so completely unique. But he must have really been a miserable guy. I'll bet he had hands in his cupboard too!
