A woman instantly called out to me begging me to come to her table which was filled with cards and crystals. She wanted to read my fortune and I ever the sceptic was eager to prove her wrong.

The Tale of the Upward Spiral
It was Hallows eve and I stood in the door way awaiting the children who came every year seeking their treats of chocolate and candy. In truth I had expected them to begin knocking a while ago, and with each passing hour I grew more concerned something was wrong with the evening when a single knock didn't arrive. I decided to walk to the door and make sure that the Jack lantern was still lit, still inviting visitors to the door steps.
She droned on and on about the stars and the planets till I was certain I would fall asleep but her finally words made me lift my head before bursting into laughter. "The doctor will receive the secret to eternal life". Shaking my head I walked away, stopping to look at vendors who sold their wares and the creepy sound of carnival music before ushering us back up the hill.
I bought a mask to keep myself in the spirt and began to walk again, stopping to take pictures every now and then of some of the amazing costumes I noticed along the way.
