I’m working on some transitions here, including:
- the transition from October to November and, therefore,
- the transition to colder weather.
Also, we set the clocks back over the weekend, and that always seems to have an effect on me.
So, to celebrate transitions, I am going to post some photos I’ve take recently, that I haven’t used yet!
This reminds me of the idiom
Killing two birds with one stone
… but I’m not crazy about idioms that involve harming animals, these days. For example, I’ve also stopped saying
There’s more than one way to skin a cat
…. even though I think that’s a helpful concept, too.
Anyway, where was I?
Oh, yes! Here are some transitional images, for my blog post today:
Two weeks ago, my son and I visited a wonderful costume company, in Arlington Center:
My son was planning his Halloween costume (he dressed up as Walter White, from “Breaking Bad”) and he was looking for ways he could look more like this:
While we didn’t buy anything that day, we found some amazing stuff at The Costume Company:
Toni, whom I hope you can see (on the right in the last photo), said that many of the items at the Costume Company are one-of-a-kind. She told us a story about that beautiful Marie-Antoinette-type costume, shown above in their promotional postcard: A copy of that original costume, which was shared on the internet, showed up in a music video, without attribution. We all agreed that once you put something excellent out there, it’s difficult to prevent people from copying it.
Let’s see if I have any other Halloween-related images to show you ….
Not really, I guess I was too caught up in other things, last month.
Although here is an image of Captain Kirk, from Star Trek, dressed up as an umpire, which was posted in a window:
Okay! It’s time to leave October behind, pictorially.
Here are some photos I took last night, to help me transition into what’s ahead:
Oooops! I guess that’s still a throw-back to October.
Let me try again:
That’s more like it! That tells us that Thanksgiving is coming, soon, to these parts.
Here’s the last photo I took last night:
Arrrghhh!! Too much of a transition, too soon, for me right now.
Although, I will end with this: Michael (my bf) pointed out, last night, how much I enjoy all the colorful lights, as winter takes hold.
Those DO help, for sure.
Thanks to thefreedictionary,com, The Costume Company, “Breaking Bad,” Star Trek,” my son, Michael, masqueraders everywhere, people going through transitions of any kind, and to you — of course! — for visiting today.
