Under the Twinkle of Fading Stars (132)

"It was the Halloween of 1963 and I wanted to be Peter Pan, not just in costume but also in life. Under the twinkle of fading stars and the age of sixteen, my dreams would be dashed. My brother came back from college and for a few short hours, I was a kid brother again. Gordy and I dressed as vampires and took a passel of kiddies door-to-door to scare the neighbors into giving treats, and then delivered the kids home. We ended the night on Cemetery Hill high above Union Hollow, our small Appalachian town."
