The first preparations for Halloween

Sorry for the lack of posts, I have been ill the past week.

Halloween is coming up. I think Halloween is my favorite time of year. It provides the perfect excuse to delve into a topic that has pretty much always been of interest to me, that topic being the world of the supernatural, the paranormal. So, for the rest of the month, I will be doing some research into unexplained phenomena. It will be quite exciting.

I intend to share much of my findings on this blog. So be prepared for that!

I am a skeptic about these things, to be perfectly honest. To be fascinated by them does not necessarily mean that I believe in them. I do admit though that I do get the whole “shiver down my spine” experience and become terribly jumpy when I do read about these things. That does not deter me.

My ultimate goal with this project is to one day visit supposedly haunted sites, spend time alone in them (even though that is considered not advisable to go to these places alone), and actually look for explanations other than haunting. So many investigators go in with the prejudice of believing it is paranormal activity, without even looking for any alternate explanation, but I would like to approach it the other way, looking for any possible natural explanation.

I like to write fiction, so perhaps learning about these things will fuel good fiction, as well. Who knows?

That’s all for now!
