The Anniversary

~

Today she would find out if her entire life was a lie.

Jiggling her foot and twisting a strand of hair through her fingers, Marissa closed her eyes and prayed, “Let it be good … let it be good”.

But, it wasn’t.

Gripping the edge of the table where she sat she willed herself not to pass out. Happy noises, jangly music, and carnival smells faded to the background of her consciousness, as the old fortune teller continued gazing into her crystal ball.

With a gasp, Madame Sophia clutched her chest. “Get out … get out now…”.

“What? What do you mean?” Marissa stared at the old woman.

“Leave now; I don’t give readings to ghosts.” She made the sign of the cross, then turned her back.

Confused, Marissa glanced at the crystal ball. She saw a granite gravestone with her name and dates of birth and death carved there. She’d died a hundred years ago on this very date.

First I thought of, well, cameras which I’ll get to in a minute.

Next was my ’69 Camaro. I loved that car. I can’t remember if I have a picture of the Camaro, but it was a deep burgundy, with black top. It had an 8-track tape deck in there, and I went right out and bought a Simon & Garfunkle tape to play in it.

***

Cameras I have!

Here are some of my cameras. I don’t know that they work any more since I don’t use them.  I don’t remember having a photo of me taking a picture with a camera, or anyone else, for that matter. The silver one (middle left) I guess is still working, but I got weird vibes from it. I think my house ghost didn’t like me using it, or something, because it would snatch all the energy from the batteries as soon as I put new ones in. I tried over and over with brand new batteries, and every time, they would be immediately be drained. The Minolta on the bottom left was my favorite, but it quit working, and I couldn’t find anyone who could repair it.  I also had fun with my ‘Swinger’ camera. You could pull the picture out and wait for it to develop. Now, I just use my phone camera.

My first camera was an old fashioned box camera that was my Dad’s. It only took black & white pictures you’d have to get developed. That was no problem though, as my Dad fixed up a dark room and he’d develop them himself.

This is a scary looking squirrel Halloween decoration. He is gray, with a red eye, and pointy teeth with fake red blood dripping out of his mouth.

***

A ghost of light and stars are sounding. A shell and star can be the robins.

The moon shall be set; and the soft veil, the thunder of the stream of the wind was done

Our cat shall stand in spirit, emotional stars court the heavens of the world

Strange rings, this music which should have all the souls.

Blue eyed dreamer

Pale of face

Sees beyond eternities grace

Dark swirling demons

Evil powers he will blunt

Ritual of sage

Chants profound

Banish monsters all around

The smudge he waves

Cleansing smoke now bestow

Leave behind peaceful glow

Mystery Noise

Standard

Mystery Noise

***

For the past few weeks we’ve been hearing strange noises.

It sounds like it’s someone walking around or bumping the ceiling when we are out in the garage.

I hear it early in the mornings when it’s still dark outside, and also during the day, and at night.

I just hear it out there, not when we are in the house, just the garage.

It might be up in the attic, or even on the roof, but I don’t know.

Could it be birds on the roof? I’m thinking no, because the birds we have around here are not large, and wouldn’t weigh enough to make a sound with their feet. They aren’t active at night anyway.

Could it be cats on the roof. Possible, but the outside cats we have now are just not that energetic to climb on the roof and I’ve never seen them up there. We have had cats that did, in the past though.

It couldn’t be squirrels, or raccoons, because we don’t have those around here either.

Once I thought it might be the wind blowing the shingles on the roof, but I’ve looked outside when I hear the noise, and the wind isn’t blowing at all.

This might be strange, but I think it’s our ghost, or another one has come to pay a visit. There are no other noises, though … just the thumping sound.

Here’s the opening to our attic that is out there. There is nothing at all stored up there, and we never go up there.

Letter to myself:

Dear Ghost,

Be flash about music

Rules challenge you

Scared?

Behind tragedy, smiles escaped

Independent evening learned

Worldwide – pick anything

Myths painted without fun

Peace, rain, art … Quiet ahhhh

This is the high school I went to. Lubbock High School was founded in 1891, and moved to this brand new building in 1931. It was built in the Romanesque Revival style. I think it is a beautiful building.

LHS is haunted. This fact has been known for many years. I, myself, experienced weird things, when I attended classes there. People have seen ghostly figures in the bell tower, and heard music coming from empty rooms. There are strange knocking sounds from inside the sealed walls, and I could feel the strangeness while walking in the 3rd floor back hallway. The arches in front are very spooky. You can hear a weeping woman, if you stand in a certain spot under them, and the auditorium and balcony have been the sight of other haunting episodes. There are also several gargoyles on the building.

Some of the past students who went on to become famous were, Buddy Holly, Natalie Maines (of the Dixie Chicks), Ralna English, and Mac Davis, among many other notables.

Here’s the photos I took.

I’m a big fan of painted rocks. I like them, and I like painting them myself.

I’ve probably painted hundreds over the years, starting back in the early 1970s.

You can find a rock most anywhere you look, or you can buy bunches of them in craft stores, or gardening centers.

The paint I use is acrylic, which comes in all kinds of pretty colors, and dries fast. I usually try to seal with a clear coat, too.

I do these just for fun, but I also give them as gifts, and for the ongoing Kindness Rock fad that happens all over the world.

“You Rock”

With one little rock

From Rock-a-bye-baby, to

Rock around the clock

Rock ‘n roll with Buddy, and

Jenny from the block

Find a painted rock

Happiness unlock

We rock your world,

And I have to say

You’ll be rocked

Day by day

When I leave some rocks to be found, I put one of my labels on the back. It says:

***

I’ve painted rocks for all kinds of holidays, and/or also just a nice, funny, or uplifting message on them.

Sometimes I actually find a rock someone else has left around town. That’s always fun. I post it to the groups, and then re-hide it for someone else to find. 🙂
