It’s magic. Today is day 3 (and final) of the ghost walks and today is again “Opening Day”. It’s all about here and now and the people we’re going to be exploring with tonight. Given that, I can’t help but reflect on the last 2 days.
Last night, I think that all 4 tour guides and the 2 cemetery sitters had wild experiences with their ghost walkers. At the cemetery, one woman showed me photos that she had just taken of the anchor monument and they had these amazing light anomalies. We’re now at a count of 4 sightings of the shadow figure in the cemetery, too. On one walk last night, a lady had such an intense experience that the rest of the group needed to join hands in a circle with her and help her re-attain peace and calm.
The highlights are too numerous to relate in one go. The young man who told me about the apparition he saw on the first night in his new bedroom after he was adopted. The couple of girls pouring over the Valor and Sorrow plaque in Rotary Park intent on answering all the questions on the Jr. Ghost Hunt. The teens who came back to the cemetery between tour groups so that they could put mugwort in one of the candles.
Time to get on with prepping for the Jr. Ghost Hunt this afternoon and the walks this evening.

Update… Well, that kicked ass. Kicked my ass and everyone elses. What a labor of love.
