We were at Stillwater Reservoir, a man made lake, in the Western Adirondacks at a Wooden Canoe Heritage Association gathering to go out canoeing. Here we are gathering canoes at the shore of Stillwater getting ready to head out this chilly morning at 45-50 degrees in the rain to explore the lake. There is a kevlar canoe in the foreground and a real wood and canvas canoe in the background. In all we had about 20 people go out onto the lake for some Fall paddling.
Spirit Day is dedicated to bring awareness of the bullying of members of the LGBTQ community. Bullying is wrong and should not be tolerated. These folks want to live their lives in peace and freedom of fear. I salute this effort to make our communities safe for all. I love my friends who are LGBTQ and they make the world a better place by being who Good created them to be.
It’s ten at night I’m writing,
Have you thought about inviting…
Fairy or sprite,
To a gathering extraordinary?
Halloween is coming soon,
Perhaps with a bright moon….
And sprites take a chance,
Could you fill an entire room?
Mythical creatures commence,
To gather for humans hence…
Believers in your evidence!
Bring a fiddle to play,
Or flute to which to sway…
Do not fear
Your friends here,
Will keep you from dismay!

My affectionate love,
Decided this soup to fix.
We added some beef and potato,
Soup leftovers without tomato…
Some parsley “trees”—
She added these—
And filled my soup bowl on the table.
Leftovers divided by two,
Two suppers for me to chew…
Bread and butter
Soaked up broth water,
A savory soup it is, too!
**A “free” table is where residents place things they want to give away….food items, books, extra kitchen utensils, etc.
Did you know that a place itself (without a house or other building) can be haunted?
Many years ago, my spouse and I bought a wooded acre in Maine, and built a house there. There was a bit of the property that always felt creepy to us and to others who visited. No reason for it: it was near the road, not isolated, and the area was quite scenic. Yet I (and others) would walk around that part of the property rather than be there and get the feeling of being observed by something unfriendly. This bit of the yard abutted one room of the house – and that room was never a comfortable place. I can’t explain any of this except assure you that I and others experienced the same weird feeling there.
Here is another example, from my book, About Ghosts: A Useful Handbook:
The following is…

Same picture, “take two!” 😎
Many titillating scandals are
fully intended to lead to love.
Should shenanigans transpire. . .
Let the romance begin!
“Hamstahs” at Shehanne Moore’s
blog are fabulous, truly fashionable.
Have you seen their hats?

I admire them, lest I turn my back
accidentally! You need to stay on your
toes with ’em rascals. They may
decide as the famous singer so
aptly suggested to, “Get it on,” in
the glass box you purchased.
It was going to be a terrarium!
Succulent plants, not critter
babies were going to add
to my oxygen supply.
I think you’ll remember her
Lady Fury and Lady Malice
from your reading the books
I recommended this summer.
I’m hoping other strong,
demanding and exciting women
characters have inhabited your mind.
Shehanne’s books are already
part of your favorites. Of course,
the good feelings may extend
