The leaves starting to change, the nip in the air, the tang of a cold glass of cider, smoke from the sacrificial fires. . . Can it get any better?

Ain't it the TRUTH??? I live for this time of year...leaves don't change here but air is definately Fall and Halloween stuff is everywhere.
I just did a neat Halloween Prop for a Peppers Ghost Illusion being built by Owen Magic for Illusionist David Seebach. (See it on my front page) It sure got me in the mood!!!

Happy Fall Ravin an all...this is 'the goods'.

I have had "the feeling" for a few weeks now. I live in a cool climate and it has felt like Autumn in the air for a while. I get excited around this time of year. I can feel my....."transformation" already starting to take place........

This time of year always reminds me of Ray Bradbury....

"First of all it was October, a rare month for boys. Not that all months aren't rare. But there be bad and good, as the pirates say. Take September, a bad month: school begins. Consider August, a good month: school hasn't begun yet. July, well, July's really fine: there's no chance in the world for school. June, no doubting it, June's best of all, for the school doors spring wide and September's a billion years away.

But you take October now. School's been on a month and you're riding easier in the reins, jogging along. You got time to think of the garbage you'll dump on old man Prickett's porch, or the hairy-ape costume you'll wear to the YMCA the last night of the month. And if it's around October twentieth and everything smoky-smelling and the sky orange and ash gray at twilight, it seems Halloween will never come in a fall of broomsticks and a soft flap of bedsheets around corners."

I dare say I have you all beat -- autumn in New England is truly magical! Walking the same streets as Poe and Lovecraft, as colorful dry leaves scatter in the cool wind ... wonderful.

Happy autumn, one and all!

Yes New England is full of lore and rich with atmosphere of legends, where I live. Sleepy Hollow not far from here. Autumn in the Berkshires (Western Massachusetts) is glorious with fall colors, ripe with stories of ghosts and witches in Salem, Mass. It doesn't get any better for magic and mystery in these parts. Old houses, spooky hills, country roads. Tales of the supernatural are everywhere. Especially with a cultural background of the history of the country's origins. Both Revolutionary, and the French and Indian Wars. Not to mention Civil War training campsites all around. The old graveyards dating back to 300 years are still found everywhere.
That's just for starters..

Nah, I grew up in New England. I can miss a little fall color to avoid those @#$#@ "leaf peepers" and those hellacious winters, thanks. Besides, I can walk same streets that Poe walked here. He attended UVA briefly before he was unceremoniously expelled for gambling and excessive drinking. It's funny UVA has his room glassed in for the tourists. They have a great stuffed raven on his bed post. So much for historical accuracy. Plus, I live on property that was once owned by Merriweather Lewis, about 100 yards from his house. He's buried in the church yard about 1/4 a mile from my house. And, if you want Civil War history, you can't beat Virginia. Talk about ghosts!

PS the tourism board is paying me, but perhaps they should

Sheesh, give me hot weather, high humidity, the threat of hurricanes, and the lightning capital of the United States any day.

Snow sucks, but I love the prelude of fall.
Perfect temperatures, bizarre weather shifts...I love sitting outside with a cup of hot chocolate or tea watching the world as it dies around me. The wind in the trees no longer swishes through leaves but knocks branch against branch. The graveyards become more unkempt and there is almost never complete silence. Things rattle and creak and a running mouse can make as much noise running as a bear.
Everything starts to smell like smoke and leaf mold, but there is a certain cleanness to it all.
Fall is good...Winter is simply depressing.

Boy, things really did turn "Bizarre" here on this thread over night ! Did I say something wrong about Massachusetts ? I love the warm weather too, but I was just only romanticizing about what will be left, (Before) the winter hits. Mark Raven, sorry if I pushed a button dude... Geesh ! Smile

SO yeah John, My family makes a trip to Sleepy Hollow most every year around Halloween...we go to the Halloween festivities at Philipsburg Manor, Late 17th century Manor house and farm. It's too cool to watch the Headless Horseman in full gallop across the fields.

It's also a great time of year up there to tour Washington Irving's house on the Hudson. Not to be missed.

Man, not sure where that was coming from. . . I was only responding with fun in my heart, friend.

It is getting foggy outside. Must leave now and prepare my photo slide projector with some ghost pictures. In the days of camera obscura that was no problem, now you only need an accumulator and a low voltage bulb inside. And I have enough time until the midnight show...and I like the spectators faces when seeing ghosts - a real good mood setter for bizarre magick.
