The Great Pumpkin Card

"Each year, the Great Pumpkin rises out of the pumpkin patch that he thinks is the most sincere. He's gotta pick this one. He's got to. I don't see how a pumpkin patch can be more sincere than this one. You can look around and there's not a sign of hypocrisy. Nothing but sincerity as far as the eye can see." – Charles M. Schulz, It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

Linus' hope is endearing, and the thought of a sincere pumpkin patch is heartening. A place with no sign of hypocrisy and nothing but sincerity, now that's a warm and wonderful place to be. In fact, I was there this past weekend. Two sorority sisters and I spent the weekend together for the first time in over 30 years. Our days were filled with fabulous food, long conversations and the walks to go with them, an old scrapbook and the mental quest for names, and hugs that speak of abiding friendship without words.

The Great Pumpkin will surely rise from 5 Hedgerow Lane this year.
