Strange Happenings in November

If Halloween is any indication, the holidays are going to be a lot quieter this year. I myself canceled my annual family party and left my candy bowl out on the porch so trick or treaters could help themselves. For a Saturday, there were far fewer trick or treaters than usual (probably a good thing!)

Thanksgiving will undoubtedly be unusually subdued as well. So I’m trying to replace the things that aren’t possible with new things. An avant-garde home improvement project, a Pinterest art project, finally scrapbooking family photos, and participating in Nanowrimo for the first time are few things I plan on keeping busy during the holidays.

I’m still looking for ideas, so I’d love to hear how you’re coping!

All Saints Day

Paranormal streaming on Netflix.

“Based on the novels of Egyptian author Ahmed Khaled Tawfik and set in the 1960s, Netflix’s first original series from Egypt revolves around a hematologist who finds himself haunted by a ghost who may be tied to his past.”

Mercury at greatest western elongation. Since Mercury is closer to the sun than is it to earth, it can be difficult to spot in the night sky. However, every three to four months it reaches its greatest separation, or elongation, from the sun, and becomes visible.

To find Mercury, look for it in the west, just before sunrise.

We Keep the Dead Close: A Murder at Harvard and a Half a Century of Silence by Becky Cooper on shelves.

“WE KEEP THE DEAD CLOSE is a memoir of mirrors, misogyny, and murder. It is at once a rumination on the violence and oppression that rules our revered institutions, a ghost story reflecting one young woman’s past onto another’s present, and a love story for a girl who was lost to history.”

Film for Her by Orion Carloto on shelves.

“Film for Her is a story book of people, places, and memories captured on film. Through photographs, poetry, prose, and a short story, Orion Carloto invites readers to remember the forgotten and reach into the past, find comfort in the present, and make sense of the intangible future. Film photography isn’t just eye candy; it’s timeless and romantic—the ideal complement to Carloto’s writing. In Film for Her, much like a visual diary, word and image are intertwined in a book perfect for both gift and self-purchase.”

Thanksgiving

  1. I celebrated Halloween in your place. A grisly, bloody driveway murder scene and a couple of pumpkins flaming in the garden. One kid down the street yelled. Oh yeah, I remember this house from last year. We might have had half the normal amount of trick or treaters. Maybe the pandemic will be done by next year.
