Lead Us Into Temptation
Shiloh was dangerously close to hyperventilating. The staggered gasps were nearly louder than the stumbling, wobbly sprint down the dark hallway of the abandoned home. Glancing back briefly over her shoulder, she almost slipped on an accent rug casually placed at the clawed feet of a table placed before the giant window- the fork in the road, as it were; head swinging wildly back in forth in indecision, the light from a candle in a window just to the left glinted off the blood on the slips of skin bared in the gashes of her sweater, and off the face of a very old-fashioned wristwatch.
Trick 'r Treat, The Best Halloween Movie Ever
Always hand out candy to trick or treaters. Always wear a costume. NEVER blow out a Jack O'Lantern before midnight. Always respect the dead.
The Dark Night Playlist - 2
I'm losing my MIND right now it's actually October oh my God. I . . . this year has been so aggravating and disheartening but I'll be damned if I let this year attempt to sully my most powerful season. With all that being said, welcome back to my Dark Night playlist! You may have read the first one, you may have not, and that's okay because all you need to know is that these are the songs being repeated at least 20 times in the next 30 days. My window is partly decorated, the orange and black tassels are up, and now it's time to continue our song list.
The Dark Night Playlist - 1
The nights are shorter, the days may be growing brisk for you in whatever part of the world you are, and the stores are stocking up on decorations and pumpkins . . .
A Virtual Manifestation
I write this piece, with the intention to see my manifestation in the world, and not just in the Ether behind my eyelids. To realize my desires, and set the intention to make them a reality.
The Indefatigability Playlist
I think, generally, everyone loves music. It's our solace, our panacea, our getaway, and it can be a powerful well of strength to draw from. Music means a lot of things to a lot of people, and can be experienced in just as many ways. Some are eclectic listeners, right? They pluck and pick at all different kinds of genres without care to anything other than the sound and the feeling of it. Some are steadfast; traditional even, in their listening tastes that date back to what their parents listened to or the music of their region/country/etc. Others are quite particular about their tastes while others are less so. We all have different experiences with music and that is a fabulous truth.
Slay: The Ancestors Blessed Me With This Read
I started Slay at 9:00 in the evening. I read the last page at 11:45. When I tell you . . . it has been years since I've read through a book that quickly, been so consumed by a story until I devoured it? I haven't read through a book in one complete sitting since Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I can count on one hand the number of books, as well, that have evoked such a visceral and real reaction from me as this book had, the kind that makes my chest tighten and heart flare with something sharp and a little painful for the characters. Included in that list of books to spark such a rare reaction is the aforementioned Harry Potter book, The Red Tent by Anita Diamant, and a book called The Sight by David Clement-Davies. A motley assembly, each with their own power to grab something within me in a strangling grip that compels me to push through the books just so I can know relief from the feeling.
Yes, Lydia, There Is A Halloween
It's August 6th and I'm preparing to get S P O O K Y. Halloween is a big holiday that means a lot of different things to a lot of different people. Some would decry it as an evil day that worships devils. Some look forward to it as a chance to shed a bit of that banal shroud and embrace the weirdness within. Some see it as a hallowed event that allows them an easier time to communicate and establish links to the worlds and beings beyond the veil. Some welcome it as a chance to greet those on the other side. These all have some truth in them, don't they?
