Hocus Focus

A L O H A From Honolulu!

The sound of laughter is
like the vaulted dome
of a temple of happiness.
   Milan Kundera

There is a child in
every one of us who
is still a trick-or-treater
looking for a brightly-lit
front porch.
Robert Brault

Clothes make a statement.
Costumes tell a story.
   Mason Cooley

It's all just a bunch
of hocus pocus!
      Hocus Pocus

The farther we've gotten
from the magic and
mystery of our past,
the more we've come
to need Halloween.
     Paula Curan

Love You,
  Cloudia & Pixie

Love that smiling mural.
Halloween and trick or treaters are really not celebrated here. Big business is trying to get us on board - but so far they are failing.

The smiling mural is lovely, specially being painted in yellow too.
Beautiful cover photo too. That poor old dog doesn't look too happy with that skirt :)
Thanks for participating in Monday Murals.

We went to my granddaughter's (7yo) house. Her neighborhood is FULL of kids around her age. It was a mob scene all night. Everyone was out in their driveways with fires going.

I love the smiley-face mural! I think that poor child starved to death looking for a brightly lit porch, and now her bones are swinging in the breeze...

Cloudia said...

Best wishes for a great week my friends! Things are on the mend ♥️

A cute pup. Though I expect Miss Pixie might disagree.

I love, love, love that mural, Cloudia. I see people were celebrating Halloween in your neighborhood. That dog does NOT look happy, though.

I apologize about T Tuesday last week. This week I have made it clear where to look for the T post in case you decide to join us. I should have gotten back to you sooner, but life got in the way, I'm afraid.
