“We sometimes think we want to disappear, but all we really want to be found.”
The message of this photo carries a revelation about the fun of dressing up on Halloween. As a kid, I looked forward to being noticed and talked to by adults who normally ignored me.
Last night I dreamed that I was with a large group of adults who were walking around zombie-like, doing very strange things. I was confused about what was going on until overhearing the organizer say, “When someone eventually shows enough interest to ask what you are doing, you may have a difficult time answering. You have been doing this for so long that you may have forgotten why.”
This Halloween, see more than costumes. We all want to be found.
