Swinging Toward Blue Sky…

“And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
And the sign flashed out its warning

And tenement halls
And whispered in the sounds of silence”…By Paul Simon

Riches flow about the words of sound—tongues known and tasted—treasured—accepted and often heard in other spaces-places seen—felled or yelled against gloom—gathers where sunlight is wishing—spaces scattered among stars of reaches—stretches across skies of night and spaces between word sound—and light. Sand and leaves—together speak—rustle—whisper—murmur and moan of death—not found—of life—not known. And! Still—notions of her away sounds and her silence. Feathers and Leaves and Sand and Ashes and Seas—quiet see—and thunder— ‘cross sky and wave splash onto shoreline—and skylines—and time. The share of poet-touch and story-spin—of exile’s faith—of disaster’s private pain—as speech native—fails—creative spirit—often maims—creature-speak…

Ghosts: Reblog: My Haunted Home — Theresa’s Haunted History of the Tri-State

Book 'Em, Jan O

Another first-hand account of events in a haunted house!  Really good!  Read on!

I don’t think I would ever classify the house I live in now as haunted. Having grown up in my mom’s current home in Winfield, where it was a strange day when you DIDN’T see an apparition walking down the hall, pretty much any sort of suspected paranormal activity happening here would pale in comparison.I…

The Beatles & The Isley Brothers : Twist and Shout!

Grateful for these fine, fine, times.

He wants a new story to tell.

He doesn’t…
