The Seduction of Halloween

francis-bacon-figure-with-meatIt’s that time of the year again when we all get to dress up and eat candy without being judged, it’s charming as it is in it’s simplicity.

What gets me so excited about it is the whole modern concept about it; leave alone the connecting with the departed bit, I mean the dark, scary, haunting fetishism we have created for it. It is simply amazing. There is so much dark energy going on about the unfettered adult world from sexual expoits, cultic activities and quier imagery that makes this one of my favourite times of the year. The kind of imagination is simply divine if you know how to do it right. Costumes are just one part of it that has been recently marred by such subtleties it breaks my heart. I like to see ghost costumes, skeleton costumes, voodoo costumes and the like, the darker the better because I think , and this is just me speaking; Halloween is about connecting with the terrors lurking behind the numbing darkness, realizing that they are one with us.

Ordinary people are awed by beauty and pink roses, extraordinary people are attracted to what is ugly, grotesque and the unordinary
