Thrice the brinded Cat hath mew'd.
Thrice and once the Hedge-Pig whined.
Harpier cries: 'Tis time, 'tis time.
Round about the Cauldon go;
In the poison'd Entrails throw.
Toad, that under cold stone
Days and Nights has thirty-one
Swelter'd Venom sleeping got,
Boil thou first i' the charmed pot.

O! well done! I commend your pains,
And every one shall share i' the gains.
you are. are you? by mariehochhaus.
And now about the Cauldron sing,
Like Elves and Fairies in a Ring,
Enchanting all that you put in.
don't tell me a story by mariehochhaus.
Black spirits and white, red spirits and gray;
Mingle, mingle, mingle, you that mingle may.
don't tell me a story by mariehochhaus.
By the pricking of my Thumbs,
Something wicked this way comes.
Open, Locks,
Whoever knocks.

I hope you all had lovely and haunting Halloween weekends, dears.
Mine was filled with too many cab rides,
too many long nights, and maybe
one too many surprises. 

Today was the new york marathon,
and feeling maybe too much relief to rid 
myself of the holiday,
I willingly trudged uptown for brunch with 
my parents, and an afternoon of a chaotic calm.
Photos soon to come.
