The Next Phase: Hellish Introspection. [Apr. 28th, 2004|04:30 am]
[In the Moment |Paranoid]
[Special Music |Black Sabbath - Paranoid]

Applications for work do this to me.

There is no rational explanation for myself.

However, looking at this submission . . .


It looks very much like an image of Jason Voorhees.

If that person was me, and I snapped that photo . . . and I knew beyond a doubt that a Friday the 13th film wasn't playing on the TV . . . that would bring up significant concern.

If I've been typing in one sentence paragraphs, and it bothers you . . . forgive me. My mind is a very separated set of thoughts, and sometimes this is the best translation.

However, this looks pretty interesting.

I think it is altered....or it's some crazy demon. I don't believe in ghosts you know.

If you're still awake...then BLEH! You didn't answer this morning.

Sorry about the no answer . . . was staring at the ghost photos.

Remember the Grosse Pointe Shores haunting I posted?


The odd part about that Lakeshore Drive . . . I didn't see any supernatural happenings there, but people have drowned off of Lakeshore Drive.

I think the night I posted it, I had gone for one of my night-time drives 'round that posh area. My natural interests led me often to stare out toward Lake St. Clair as I would drive. On more than one occasion, I had observed people running, walking, standing, and otherwise by the water's edge.

Normally, the drives during the daytime are easy to identify folks. The night drives were another story.

Sometimes I noticed people who were running at night. Most of the time, it's hard to make out folks closer to the edge of the water, as the grassy area slopes down to the concrete edge.

Usually I can make out folks . . . but I wrote off the odd person or persons that were standing near the lake the night I posted that Shadowlands submission. I figured that because the road curves at the point I saw them, the inability to see them was due to the darkness and the curving of the road.

Yet, I'm really not sure what it was. My memory's fuzzy about that night . . . but something was different about the people I saw that night. They seemed to vanish too early. I'd also watched folks as I approached, and I'd notice them for some time in the rear views on other instances.

I was very used to keeping my eyes peeled on the night drives down that part of Jefferson/Lakeshore because there were usually few or no other cars on the road with the exception of GPS squad cars. Those Pointe cops look for anyone on that road, and I would often be looking with close watch on the speed, what's in front of me, and in particular to any cop cars in my mirrors.

We read into a lot of things as humans. We, as individuals, are a rather blind lot.

Besides, I've always demonstrated the skill to creep myself out the best.

I'm just not paying attention to it.

Apologies. It's been a weird night.

I don't believe in ghosts, either.

I write in tiny little one or two sentence paragraphs, too. I think people are more likely to read it that way, for some reason.

Haven't you ever noticed that long, unbroken entries seem harder to read? Maybe that's just me.

The hardest for me to read is the screen's-length-one-paragraph. It's not just you.

I have a healthy respect for the unnatural. For whatever reason, as a child, there was an Ouija board at my grandparents' house.

One day was spent playing with it. Nothing of the typical stories happened . . . nothing unseen took control of the piece, nothing unusual happened while I was playing with the board.

My grandmother, a person that wasn't usually sickly or prone to colds, became rather ill with a bad cold almost right after I had finished playing with the board that day.

It was probably the only time I had ever played with the board. After that odd coincidence, I left it alone . . . given the stories around the 'evil' nature of the board, I really didn't want to get too involved with it.

My grandmother was a very religious person. She actually was quite spiritual, and that she was an uncommonly good-natured and wonderful person, the whole childhood board/grandma illness situation . . . even if everything to do with afterlife or the soul turned out to be a bunch of hogwash, it was one of those things, I don't know how to explain it.

I have heard some creepy things abot those boards....I remember some people were using one at a theatre party I went to in high school...just being in the same house with it was creepy enough....but I remember everyone using it were scared because it was doing crazy stuff. They are not to be messed with.

As a kid, I may have been a little superstitious.

Today, it's more of one of those things where you have a strange experience by association, and you really remember it that way. Kind of like my situation with milk, or especially when I ate a bunch of danishes without knowing I had influenza. Or, Brad's macaroni and cheese along the same line.
