Loneliness

Loneliness is like the wind.
Sometimes it’s a gentle breeze that touches your cheek.
Sometimes it’s a strong gust that knocks you over.

June Gloom Picture Challenge

“Some said the thunder called the lurking fear out of its habitation, while others said the thunder was its voice.” – H.P. Lovecraft

In this volatile world filled with ominous creatures and unknown dangers, the fine line between madness and reason evaporates with the arrival of the lurking fear.
Curious humans stumble upon Mother Nature’s guardians, as they watch over the gates of the abyss, only to become prey to Summer’s haunting season.

Friday Fright Nightcaps

It’s the return of Friday Fright Nightcaps!

Today, in honor of National Pizza Party Day, which no one is celebrating due to the pandemic, my sources tell me that the daiquiri is the perfect companion for heavy pizzas, such as pepperoni, or sausage, or pepperoni and sausage…something about all that cheese and red sauce pairing well with the rum and tart.
So, fire up that old stone oven because I found a fangalicious recipe for a Halloween Daiquiri from the good folks over at Vinepair that won’t wait til Fall.

Please don’t let me catch Covid-19.

I don’t want to miss Halloween,

but if I do,

bury me inside of a shoe,

instead of under a tree.
