I would stand transfixed before the windows of the confectioners' shops, fascinated by the luminous sparkle of candied fruits, the cloudy lustre of jellies, the kaleidoscope inflorescence of acidulated fruitdrops -- red, green, orange, violet: I coveted the colours themselves as much as the pleasure they promised me."

i made the very intelligent move of purchasing halloween candy 2 weeks early. now, of course, 2 days prior to all hallow's eve, all the candy has been eaten and i am without choice in purchasing more. so very typical for an addict.
but there is a bright side to all this candy nonsense. last night in my groups, i passed around a small bowl of halloween treats and the result was a highly interactive discussion from each of the 2 groups- insightful, a bit more honest, and lively as hell.
score one point for each side.
