I’ve always been attracted to old fences. Especially when the post has been out in the weather for a while and begins to take on a personality. Some might say it’s just pareidolia but I think it’s good old fashioned creativity. Michaelangelo said that he saw David in the stone before he began to carve away the excess material.
When I looked at the fence post in tonight’s Feature Image I saw the grimacing face of a pirate right down to the eye patch formed by the leaf. Because it’s Halloween night my imagination saw a small costume party.
Every costume party, good costume party, has a ghost. A little farther down the row I was visited by a ghost in full banshee scream. The wire of the fence even formed a shroud in my imagination.
Later when I stopped by the Carnifex Ferry Overlook I spotted another fence post that could have been dressed for a Halloween costume party. This was apparently coming as a robot. There was always at least one kid at every costume party wearing cardboard boxes painted silver and aluminum foil for accessories.
My closing thoughts for tonight are to never allow your imagination to grow up too much. After all, adulthood should in part be childhood without restrictions. That’s it for tonight friends and be blessed throughout your days.
