Daily Prompt


Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt.


I have a story to tell you about a house

that is full of ghosts.


They walk in the halls

they slither

in the walls

they scream from the basement

and whisper from the attic.


I have a story to tell you about a house

that is full of ghosts.


The house never sleeps

but it always dreams

the windows are shuttered

but there is nothing they can’t see.


I have a story to tell you about a house

that is full of ghosts.


Don’t bother to knock

just push open the door.

I’m waiting to share  them

each and every word about them


With you.

Day Seven: “Big” — A Point of View

Today, let’s go big. Photograph something of massive size, inside or outside.

I took these a few years ago when the King Tut exhibit came to Seattle.

I had been lucky enough to be invited to an event for the Media and Elected officials before it was opened to the public.

 I was beside myself- I was going to have a chance to stroll through the exhibits eat some great food and hear some great music- plus there was a bug zoo going on at the same time.

What can be better then that?

Seeing this before the exhibit opened:

I walked out of my warehouse and saw this peeking at me from the street above:

I couldn’t believe it- Anubis, looking out over me.

I had been fascinated with archeology since I was eight years old and most of what motivated me to learn and work as an embalmer was Anubis and what he represented.

I walked a little closer and looked up – it was a very surreal moment.

The  I ran through the tunnel to the street above and there he was:

Anubis would look over the building I work in for the entire time  The King Tut Exhibit was in Seattle- the day they took him away I couldn’t watch. It was sad.

Still, when I walk by the King Street Station I can still see him there:

I took these photos with my digital point and click camera- I was trying to figure out how to use it and get interesting shots from it despite the fact it did all of the thinking.

But I did all the feeling.
