10/31/12 – It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown


“Never jump into a pile of leaves with a wet sucker.” – Linus, “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” 

It’s funny the things you can learn from a quote in a children’s film. Although, I can’t say that “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” is just for children either. I wanted to use a quote today that is related to Halloween but has a broader meaning, to me at least.

“Never jump into a pile of leaves with a wet sucker,” Linus sys in the movie. For obvious reasons, this is GREAT advice. Your sucker would be covered in leaves and inedible. But what about in real life? This quote, to me, speaks about vulnerability. Never jump into a situation or relationship when you aren’t ready, when you are too vulnerable, when your “sucker is wet.” Give yourself time to approach each new endeavor, each new relationship and each new stage of your life without hesitation. It’s not bad to be a little vulnerable, by nature we all are and I think that beautiful things come out of this, but also be sure to guard your heart until it’s healed and your mind until is clear of unhealthy thoughts and influences.
