My creative genius, that is.
In a remarkable twist of fate, the “creativity bug” has made a habit out of biting me during Halloween season. And because it cannot stand the taste of artistic inferiority, it dies instantly. But I don’t care because for a few days I can actually create.
This is a big deal. I went to a high school known for its Fine and Performing Arts, and yet doodling doesn’t even come naturally to me.
Without fail, though, every October I dive headfirst into the Halloween arts and crafts like I’m the Pumpkin King. My mind races with costume ideas and pumpkin carving designs far beyond my ability, and I usually settle on something that will take more time and talent than I have. Somehow, though, it turns out better than I could’ve hoped for. Here’s to keeping the streak going next Halloween. MP
