Happy Halloween everyone!
I cannot begin to tell you how lovely it is to be enjoying an All Hallows Eve in New York in which people are merely pretending to be scared.
Last year the festive fakery of Halloween was replaced by the real thing — a not-so-little demon named Sandy.
This year things seem to be back the way they should be on October 31: We New Yorkers, for just one evening, forget to be serious, stop treating strangers as strangers, and realize that we are all actually one big dysfunctional family.
More than anything else, we remember that we all were children once, and that some important place within our souls, we still are.
