I bought this little ornament in China in 1979. Its face is silk and the rest is hand knitted and assembled. Exquisite workmanship. I bought a box of 8 or 10 of these ornaments, each different.

Signs of a sad Halloween

and a stone kid who will never swing in that swing. Unless, perhaps, on Halloween Eve, some trickster relocates him to his desired spot.
Another mystery, smashed into the dirt.
And finally, home again.

Each place that we go
has plenty of viewings.
of all shapes and sizes,
all turn out as prizes.
But wherever we travel to, stray to or roam. The best place we visit is always called home.
