Are We Scared Yet?

A Little Trick and a Little Treat- you decide which is which.



My favorite rendition of Poe’s ” The Raven “



However this is truly magnificent- Here is “The Raven”  read in all of it’s glory by James Earl Jones.

I’ve seen some interesting things when I travel to new places around Halloween- they’re not always spooky or macabre or even a little scary.

But they do seem to have a unique life of their own.



When I try to write about the things I find,  I can’t always tell their story precisely the way they want me too.

For obvious reasons.



I will share with you right now, I am NOT one of those Dark Adventurers.

I like things like room service and spa treatments- for the most part I really am a traditional traveler.

But I like to remember to be flexible because you never know what will pop up when you’re out and about and what new things you could try your hand at.


One thing I learned to be true is this.

No matter where you go, how far away you fly or drive away from home.

In the end

there you are.

So be yourself and have fun.

People used to seek out Marie  Laveau and ask her for help, for advice and maybe even a little justice.

A few years ago I went to her grave on Halloween

 and left a little gift and a little request .

Go ahead and ask if it worked.

Go ahead and wonder what I asked of a Powerful Voodoo Queen

on Halloween.

I am sorry to have to say

that’s private.

It’s between me and Marie

and the other residents of

Saint Louis Cemetery on Basin Street.
