My Trip into the North Forest

I had to make a trip, or rather pilgrimage, north into the forest. I felt something calling to me to make this trip and to make it now. It had been on my mind for quite a long time and haunted me daily. Was it a communion with the gods? My ancestors or something else, I don’t know.  All I knew is it had been calling to me. I could not ignore it any longer, I had to go. I just got in my car and started driving. I drove…

Have you ever felt something watching you from the shadows

What are these unseen things we feel watching us from the shadows.  We catch tiny glimpses of them in the corners of our eye. But quickly dismiss it as nothing, especially after feeling foolish and turning our head to look and see absolutely …nothing. However, others see it too.  I dare say everyone.  Even those that say they don’t, because we’re always catching them giving the same uneasy glances at dark corners and open doors leading into closets or darkened hallways. Some things are very real and need to be told. Scary stories are designed to create an…

A sweet lesson on patience.

Having experienced a lesson on patience, a NYC Taxi driver wrote: I arrived at the address and honked the horn. After waiting a few minutes I honked again. Since this was going to be my last ride of my shift I thought about just driving away, but instead I put the car in park and walked up to the door and knocked.. ‘Just a minute’, answered a frail, elderly voice. I could hear something being dragged across the floor. After a long pause, the door opened. A small woman in her 90’s…

She asked if she could cover up the angel outside, it made her nervous

A few years ago, a mother and father decided they needed a break, so they wanted to head out for a night on the town. They called their most trusted babysitter. When the babysitter arrived, the two children were already fast asleep in bed. So the babysitter just got to sit around and make sure everything was okay with the children. Later that night, the babysitter got bored and went to watch TV, but she couldn’t watch it downstairs because they did not have cable downstairs (the parents didn’t want…

Earthquakes in Oklahoma skyrocket into record numbers

Oklahoma is not a place where one would expect Earthquakes. In fact, it’s nowhere near anywhere where Earthquakes are expected to occur.  The State of Oklahoma isn’t on any major fault lines and it’s terrain is basically flat American High Plains for the most part – where the buffalo roam and the deer and other things play.  Oklahoma is a place where you expect things such as tornadoes.  Oklahoma is real famous for tornadoes (even though some places have more tornadoes than Oklahoma).  But Earthquakes in Oklahoma?  That’s unheard of……

Guardian Angels

Guardian Angels, a variation We’ve all heard about Guardian Angels and most Judeo-Christians believe they have one.  That an angel is assigned to them when they are born to watch out for them.  Some believe it’s not an angel but a loved one, such as grandma or an ancestor.  Some believe it to be a distant ancestor or perhaps a spirit of something else, such as a house or forest spirit. Let me quote an excerpt from the book, “Concealed in the Darkness by J.K. James” Is the threat of…

How to make a book trailer

“How to make a book trailer,” or “how I made my book trailer.” They say having a book trailer for your book is a great way to help promote it and grab more readers.  I am yet to see if this even makes a difference.  Nevertheless, having one definitely couldn’t hurt and if there is any chance to grab more readers – I’m on it. Promoting a book is hard and getting readers is even harder.  It’s not like I am Stephen King and can scribble anything down and it…

Black Eyed Kids

Black Eyed Children, don’t invite them into your home Black-eyed children have but one consistent request, invite us in. Whatever you do, don’t invite them into your home! Imagine this.

You’re sitting there in the dark waiting for him to return when suddenly you get an inexplicable, overwhelming feeling of terror. You sit up…

International Pun Contest Winners

Here are 10 winners from an International Pun Contest: 1. A vulture boards an airplane, carrying two dead raccoons. The stewardess looks at him and says, “I’m sorry, sir, only one carrion allowed per passenger.” 2. Two fish swim into a concrete wall. One turns to the other and says, “Dam!” 3. Two Eskimos sitting in a kayak were chilly, so they lit a fire in the craft. Unsurprisingly it sank, proving once again that you can’t have your kayak and heat it too. 4. Two hydrogen atoms meet. One says,…
