Desert Roses…

Escaping the dreary, cold and wet Pacific NW Winter, for a few days of California sunshine and warmth, immediately lifts the spirits. Coming across these roses was an added bonus. Spring gardening cannot come soon enough!

Untilled Fields

“Awake! arise! the hour is late!  Angels are knocking at thy door!  They are in haste and cannot wait!  And once departed come no more.  Awake! arise! the athlete’s arm Loses its strength by too much rest;  The fallow land, the untilled  farm Produces only weeds at best.”       Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I most often take an image and find a meaningful poem, passage, quotation to pass along that enhances the image’s appeal. The plow in the field, overgrown and neglected, brought to my mind the passage of time, the changes within a family, the death of a farmer, the loss of will, the economics of farming, the history of what was.

So, I researched “untilled fields” for a meaningful passage. What I found was a stark, historical reference to tyranny, pagan/religious conflicts, death, spirits and fairies and beliefs melded into farmers in Scotland and Ireland that left land untilled for reasons in conflict with the monarchy, the church, the prevailing beliefs. Well, that was all too grim for my original inspiration…which to me is grim enough…the loss of local farms and family history. Still, as I do almost everyday, I learned something new.

Children Possessed in Gary, Indiana: Creepy Stuff, “Portal to Hell”

exorcism

“Meanwhile, someone called DCS and asked the agency to investigate Ammons for possible child abuse or neglect. The caller, who is not named in the DCS report, speculated that Ammons might have a mental illness. The person believed the children were performing for Ammons, and she was encouraging their behavior.

DCS family case manager Valerie Washington was asked to handle the initial investigation. She gave the following account to police and in her intake officer’s report:

Hospital personnel examined Ammons and her children and found them to be healthy and free of marks or bruises. A hospital psychiatrist evaluated Ammons and determined she was of “sound mind.” Washington interviewed the family in the hospital.

While she spoke with Ammons, the 7-year-old boy started growling with his teeth showing. His eyes rolled back in his head. The boy locked his hands around his older brother’s throat and refused to let go until adults pried his hands open. Later that evening, Washington and registered nurse Willie Lee Walker brought the two boys into a small exam room for an interview. Campbell joined them.

The 7-year-old stared into his brother’s eyes and began to growl again. “It’s time to die,” the boy said in a deep, unnatural voice. “I will kill you.” While the youngest boy spoke, the older brother started head-butting Campbell in the stomach. Campbell grabbed her grandson’s hands and started praying.” (Source: Indy Star)

What happened next would rattle the witnesses, and to some it would offer not only evidence but proof of paranormal activity.

“It’s time to die,” the boy said in a deep, unnatural voice. “I will kill you.”

According to Washington’s original DCS report — an account corroborated by Walker, the nurse — the 9-year-old had a “weird grin” and walked backward up a wall to the ceiling. He then flipped over Campbell, landing on his feet. He never let go of his grandmother’s hand. “He walked up the wall, flipped over her and stood there,” Walker told The Star. “There’s no way he could’ve done that.”

Later, police asked Washington whether the boy had run up the wall, as though performing an acrobatic trick. No, Washington told them. She said the boy “glided backward on the floor, wall and ceiling,” according to a police report.

Photography: Creepy Factor

creep hauntedMore than one person working inside and out at my dear departed parents old house felt they were not alone during different stages of the cleanup. Sounds, movements, shadows, energies more than once creeped out the help. 

Knowing the history of the house, I have to wonder if there wasn’t some forces at play or being playful. I actually had people refuse to be alone in the house.
