Woke up before dawn and got in the car. Drove all across the mountainsides and open vineyards of France and Spain, listening to intermittent radio static, and stopping wherever looked pretty. At one point, Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” b/w Siouxsie and the Banshees ”Trick or Treat.” Later on, the costumed children on parade through Collioure, benignly smiling parents raining candy down on them from high windows. The Mediterranean, the anxious dog, the paths that were not paths, the end of the road, getting lost, whoops! found, farms, kind people, etc. There is a lot more.
But, suffice to say this much: the best Halloween I’ve had in ages.
