THERE IS much of importance going on. A lot of it is quietly good for the planet and for humankind but largely goes unnoticed. Amid the fireworks and noisy clatter of wars, earthquakes, innocent lives lost, misinformation and confusion that do make up the news, a real life boogieman and bombastic bully, viewed as orange-hued by some, gained quite a cult of followers. The decorative pumpkin (above) was a recent reminder of the "horror show" we've been watching.

The US election is one of the scariest things happening in our midst this 2016 Halloween season. I think a large portion of the world will be hiding under their bed covers this November afraid of the outcome.

If you're not frightened enough already check out Halloween costumes from a previous year HERE.

  1. I so agree with you on the scariness of the U.S. election this year!

  2. Yes indeed...this election is one for the history books. But I WILL vote. More or less for the party since I think NEITHER is good for the USA.

  3. I don’t have a vote but I like Hillary. Many have forgotten she was the most admired woman in the world for years and years. Being maligned by conspiracy theorists has taken its toll. I'm impressed she is still standing and, from where I sit, still trying to do good even when underappreciated. Taking on health care all those years ago and literally being spat on for her efforts, she seems the best one to fix what is wrong with the current system and so much more.

  4. Yes, the times are difficult but your Halloween pumpkin photo is delightful ~

    Wishing you a wonderful week ~ ^_^

  5. Agreed - the current US election is terrifying!

    I like your pumpkin!

  6. Brr a really scary face from this pumpkin. Its indeed reflecting the spirit of our times.

  7. Nice post at the good timing! Both the mask of Clinton and of Trump were used on Halloween but the upcoming US presidential election is a real horror. I don’t have a vote, either, but I welcome a person who can deal with the issues. The first woman president whose spouse was also a president, that’s so wonderful. If other guy is chosen, it’s like riding a plane with a pilot who doesn’t know how to control it... so scary.

  8. i am in fear for our country and the world. Can't believe in this day and age so many people can be taken in by this raving sociopath. I could go on and on but I won't. Please hold good thoughts for us.
