sometimes it's hard not to spot symbolism everywhere, especially on a day like today. it was a quiet samhain, a time for remembering and refocusing and much craved for sleep. this morning helen left a candy bracelet in my in tray at work because she thought it would make a change from the keyboards and invoices and endless flyers i normally deal with. then she made me take a pack of candy love hearts, because she reckons i need all the help i can get, what with me being rubbish and shy and yearning in such matters. i never really liked the taste of them but the slogans are always cute and optimistic and it was a nice gesture so i unwrapped the tube and the first sweet i got was inscribed with the legend 'just say no'
