Hello, anyone, everyone…. whoever may be knocking upon my chamber door! Good tidings to you, and a very eerie evening….
If you know me well then you will allow for my dalliances here amidst the fall leaves and colors, where my soul longs to be all year on such a crisp autumn night as this. So when it comes ’round I am particularly happy. And of course if fall is my favorite season then it follows that Halloween is my favorite event…. I’m so happy you have come to share it with me…. I’ve so few visitors anymore.
Many years ago, when my children were young I began a yearly tradition where we would gather around the computer and record all of our voices. Then I would use special audio software to make them as scary as possible! We then would lay them down on a track with cricket sounds and other of natures things, along with some pretty scary monsters, and play the track through the window on All Hallow’s Eve as the neighborhood children came begging for candy…. What a delightful fright I would see in their eyes as I opened the door… It was absolutely delicious!
This year my children are all grown and gone, no longer interested in helping dad with his long lost art. So I carry on alone, meandering, wondering, and remembering those years past with a tear in one eye and a monster’s growl in my voice. I was so despondant recording my meager, lone voice this year, so I reached back through the years and found some voices from my two daughters from around 1997. I’m adding this years track here in the perchance that you might like to download it and play it through your own window this year…. It’s only 3 minutes long or so, but if you run it on a loop it will play all night..
But in any case, I’m wishing you a very oookie, and most spookie – Halloween!
