First, thanks to all for your cards, phone calls, and prayers concerning Seleta's health.

For anyone who hasn't yet heard, my wife, Seleta, was diagnosed with amyloidosis in July.  She is doing relatively well now, in the middle of chemotherapy treatments, pert and positive as usual, always cheerful.  We are grateful for each and every day.

Happy Halloween to everyone.
Seleta and I ran together in this race, years ago.  Sometimes it seems like just a few months ago.

The best links for last year's literary Halloween are at this link:

And, the best Halloween links from the year before are at this link:

The literary Halloween costume of the day is Holden Caulfield, from J. D. Salinger's iconic novel, The Catcher in the Rye.
