Happy Halloween! My internet is still down at home and won't be up until Friday, which means I can't upload photos from home, where all my photos are. (And I'm too much of a hermit and too absorbed in some other writing to go out in public to search for a signal. (Note the name of this blog.))
In lieu of a new post, here's a reblog from last Halloween, when I hung out with the writer Phillip Lopate at his home in Carroll Gardens. (Several posts are here.) Hit him up tonight if you're going door-to-door. He's the neighborhood trickster.
