rare is scary

I posted on Feb. 2nd regarding seance rooms, and our fear of them. I’ve avoided one of mine for so long I’d forgotten for a while that it existed. It came to mind today, and it occurs now that it may be why my Feb. 2 post ends so oddly. It is an answering machine tape, from around 1990, and on it is my mother’s voice. She hated answering machines and I think it may be one of 2 or 3 messages she ever left me. She knew I had been sick, and she hadn’t heard from me in a few days. I think I’ve listened to it once since she died in ’98. I know it’s around here somewhere, but I don’t want to think about exactly where.

    Maybe we should have a seance in “Ida’s house,” now that we know she was here with Mary and the rest of the Storrs’ clan. No reason to be afraid of seance rooms, you just need a living alpha around to deal with the alpha spirits.

  2. Spirits of strangers don’t worry me too much. Living alphas, on the other hand, can be quite terrifying.

    I can hear your mother’s voice now, she’s the reason I talk to cats the way I do, even if you don’t find it, it’s nice that her voice is captured somewhere, I scare myself more than anything or somebody at sometimes.
