I’m not going to run up to you in the street and tell you Aunt Tilly says she buried the gold under the old oak tree in the backyard. I’m not going to jump and shriek in reaction. Typically what I do is pretty boring, and not visible to bystanders. I’m a medium and a psychopomp. Defined by Dictionary.com as: “a person who conducts spirits or souls to the other world, as Hermes or Charon.” It’s a beautiful practice. It did not come easy, that’s for sure. For lots of reasons, including me going through periods of “Nope, nope, nope, that’s not what I’m seeing.” Eventually though, I had to come to terms with it, and that was fun. No, really. It wasn’t always smooth sailing. It got downright rocky, a lot. But they were ultimately all worth it. Including the “Oh shit!” moments of sheer terror. Yeah. Had those. Lots.
I love hiking! Ok, so I don’t backpack into the back country. Yet anyway. But I am so fortunate that here in the Puget Sound I have access to so many different types of hiking trails to explore.

Over time I’ve developed my own inner system for communicating with the other side. But in the interest of full disclosure, it is just kinda all… Continue reading Paranormal? There’s An App For That!
The tour guide was only half kidding when she said “We aren’t responsible if any of the ghosts follow you home.” It brought back memories of The Haunted Mansion at Disneyland. I could almost hear the sonorous tones of the heavy male narrator’s voice from the ghostly Disney ride override the tour guide uttering the… Continue reading Ghost Hunting Part Two – The Ghost That Followed Us Home
Hub and I went on a Ghost Tour last weekend. I love that sort of thing, and his daughter gave us a gift certificate for the tour for Christmas. We were lucky it wasn’t raining, but cold and foggy, which gave the perfect atmosphere. Just the history part made the tour worthwhile, but we made… Continue reading Weird Weekend – Modern Ghost Hunting Part One
I’m not a ghost hunter, and I confess I have a hard time watching paranormal investigative shows. It seems like all you get is a bunch of people running around either shrieking, or saying “Did you see/hear that?” Conversely, I do enjoy scanning YouTube for clips put up by the multitude of paranormal investigation groups… Continue reading Weird Weekend – Paranormal And Technology
