805 Volume 3, Issue 4

Read here. October is a month of transformation. Stagnant summer days transform into crisp, howling autumn nights. The morbid and the merry battle it out as stores shift into sprawling landscapes of holiday decorations. Green trees turn into skeleton bones and then into dangling lights. Children morph into little monsters ready to gobble up candy and toys and the magic wafting through the air.  

 

We transform, too. We shed our summer wings and cocoon ourselves in sweaters and scarves. We confront the stress and the joy of the season, turning into the worst or best versions of ourselves.
