October arrives on schedule, surprising me with how soon the year is flying by. Time to bring out sweaters and socks for those of us used to warmer tropical weather; time to bring out bathing suits and flip flops for those beloved snowbirds used to colder climes.
    This month’s “Ghoulish Good Time” at Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo sounds like good clean fun. Scheduled Friday and Saturday nights through November 1, these “ZooBoo” Halloween events feature kid-friendly goose bumps galore!
       For the grown-ups, Guavaween 2014 arrives on Saturday, October 25, at the Cuban Club in Ybor City. (Visit for more.)
    Flex your creative mind this month with the ongoing Dalí  and Beyond Film Series at the Salvador Dali Museum, with emphasis on movies, art films, and other films sharing a common enthusiasm for fantasy, dreams, creativity and the imagination.
    Our Healthy Kids department this issue (page 34) features tips on how to host a “Halloween” that’s natural, healthy and cost-conscious. And our Calendar of Events (page 44) is again filled with tempting local happenings sponsored by our thriving community of natural health activists and organizations.
(Remember, Daylight Savings Time ends on Sunday, November 2.)
    As always, open your mind and read on.
