Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there wondering, fearing, Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before; But the silence was unbroken, and the darkness gave no token …-“The Raven”, Edgar Allen Poe
Usually around this time of year, Edgar Allen Poe’s most popular poem always comes to mind (he was definitely on Boston’s mind). Generally speaking, Poe’s writing takes us through a journey of the darkest parts of human passion, and that’s when things get weird.
This week didn’t shed much light into anything: Ebola extends its reach to Maine, Virgin Galactic crashes during its flight test, the sugar industry tells us some sweet little lies, everyone’s tracking the midterm money, gas falls below $3/gallon (and Goldman has something to say about it!), Andy Rubin moves on, Hungarians say no to internet tax, Gold is having a meltdown, Japan goes to QE-finity while the US says good-bye to the fairy dust, a big clue to Amelia Earheart’s disappearance, the midterm elections carry on (don’t forget to vote on Tuesday!) , the Kim Jong-Un mystery finally revealed itself (spoiler alert: not that interesting), Starbucks delivers in 2015, we all get know Brittany Maynard’s heart-wrenching story, and net neutrality gets a revamp while Apple CEO Tim Cook came out of the proverbial closet (Although this wasn’t a secret to many, kudos to you Mr. Cook!)
And so to end this 10th month of the year and only 8 weeks to go and 54 shopping days until Christmas…
Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary; Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore – While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping, As of someone gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door. ‘Tis some visitor’, I muttered, ‘tapping at my chamber door – only this and nothing more’” Quoth me, “shhhhh, no candy here, turn off the lights and ignore!”
Love it or hate it… Happy Halloween! We hope you had a great week and have a great (and safe) weekend ahead! Don’t forget Daylight Savings Time ends this weekend (so don’t be late on Monday)!
