Dear Blogland,
Yes, it’s true! My weekly Letters to the Universe series returns. They’re BACK! Yay! It’s a series where I write letters to anything and everything, anywhere and everywhere, and USUALLY they are focussed on all things positive. Even the little annoyances are there to help us, if we looked at them in that ‘right’ ‘special’ way. Sometimes, the help is a little hidden, but delve deep enough and that ta-dah! moment will emerge.
May I say it is good to be back writing these letters? No?! Well, I just have!!!

Dear Hallowe’en,
I’m sad that you are almost upon us, but I hope I’ve given you a nice build up. I love all things related to Hallowe’en: the spooks, the colours, the cobwebs… even the monsters can be forgiven for being monstery around Hallowe’en. The fun monsters that is, the imaginary, legends of folklore monsters who love nothing better to make us feel fearful with a big smile. The real-life monsters do not even deserve a mention, but I’ve mentioned them here so as not to confuse the two. So, Hallowe’en… bring on your spooky best for next week!

Dear Bloggers,
Yet again I feel I must apologise for my lack of visits. I’m going to stop saying I will get to you when I can, as it seems like a ‘monstrous’ task (see what I did there?) trying to fit everything in into the small window of time I have available. Instead, a better phrase from me for moving forward: I shall see you when I see you. I may miss posts (and when I do, I do miss them by the way), but there are so many wondrous yous and only one flustered me. I will get to visit you, I always do, just get your flags ready to fly them on my next visit! I also have replying to your comments issues as well at present, so hopefully with a little less fluster that should improve. I’ll get there, however… just watch me!

Dear Cooler Weather,
Nice to see you once again. I much prefer things cooler, but I do enjoy gorgeous sunshine as well. Maybe this year the two of you could get together for a nice, crisp Autumn/Winter time. As always, though, it is up to you… we’ll have whatever you throw at us!

Dear Mystic Springs,
I hope you are almost ready for Hallowe’en… Sorry I wasn’t able to shape you into the series of posts to replace these letters posts, but the Hallowe’en specials should be just as fun. Starting at 7pm UK time, and posting on the hour every hour until almost midnight, I hope you add a little zany magic to Hallowe’en this year. Or fun. Fun will do just as much!

Dear Superheroes,
Thank you for filling in the gap between the last series of Letters posts and this new series. It was good finding out about your exploits once again – although you were all missing for virtually all of this run. Hopefully next year, you’ll be back (and with far better snippets of information to share!)

Dear The Word Adscititious,
Thank you for being the first word in this new, regular, supplemental part of these letters posts where I write to an odd word. I quite liked these ‘Dear The Word’ letters in the first series of posts, so have decided to make it a regular feature now. Less additional, or supplemental, and more just another letter, I know, but I had to link you in somehow!

Dear The World,
Are you any nearer to sorting yourself out yet? I’ve given up watching the news about you as the reports are always filled with the same stuff, and instead of being an observer, I felt like I was being manipulated into thinking one way about you, when I really don’t. You’re a great place, and I would really like to see you on the right track once again. Not that you are that far off it, I hasten to add, but we would be led to believe otherwise.

Dear Artistic Side,
I can see you, hiding there. What’s the point in hiding in plain sight? Just start with your mojo once again and get creating artistically. Just do it! (For want of a better phrase!)

And Finally, Dear Letters To The Universe,
It is so good that you are back. I am now already looking for inspiration for next week’s post, and this one, as yet, isn’t even finished… although it soon will be.

Thank you for reading.

P.S. Always one to stick with tradition, here’s a picture to finish the post:

It’s just a quick picture I threw together of a bunch of pumpkins, what with it being Hallowe’en and all soon. I may or may not have posted it before, but it seems fitting to end this second first post with a picture totally unrelated to firsts or seconds, but completely related to the prevailing topic of the month. Ah. I waffle. Have a great weekend… and if I don’t see you before, HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!

  7. Well that was fun! Had a good old giggle and a very loud howl there 🙂 Been several very serious posts from people prior to this one so this was very welcome lightheartedness 🙂 Pumpkins are pretty cool too! They’d make lovely pumpkin soup!

      1. They taste good 🎃 though not too sure about the “freaky” pumpkins with big boils on them selling for 10 now in Sainsbury!
