scary stories....muahahaha

reading blogs this morning and it occurred to me that all of us go through cycles. and when the tone changes in a blog i read daily, i am aware not only of what you write but of the tidal change you must be experiencing.

i notice in my own blog that i am impacted by others profoundly. i wonder if they all are going - hey WE - cut that out - but seriously if something you say resonates, my mind will start tripping along and bing - i have a blog too.

i hope you all take it as a compliment not as some petty thievery. but however you take it, i'd like to say that i have learned more about humanity, laughed harder, wept deeper and become part of this odd place faster than i would have thought possible.

a story if i may?

when i was a little girl, my sister and my brothers and me would all go deep into this storage space and tell spooky stories. the space was about 20 feet long and we'd huddle at the back, terrifying ourselves and then when the fear got too big, we'd rush, scramble over each other to get to the door, push it open and tumble into the sunlit safety of my parents' bedroom. there was something so wonderful about feeling terror when you know safety sits just on the other side of a door.

one day, we were doing this and got to that point of mad scramble. but this time, the door wouldn't open. the fear built into something almost tangible and we screamed and cried and my littlest brother peed in his pants. it seemed like an eternity but was probably only a minute or two before Mom came and opened the door. we fell out of the closet at her feet but this time there was no sweet relief. yes, we were glad to be out, but suddenly the rules had changed and we no longer blindly trusted in being saved.

it was for me the moment that i realized i had my own destiny in my hands. i had been a fearless child and quite a handful - my poor Mom.
and in just that one moment, i got it. i knew that all that i thought was sure and safe was only so sure and only so safe.

all this to say, life is full of terrifying moments. and how you handle them, makes all the difference. and asking for trouble, well that's just plain stupid. 'cuz sometimes the door doesn't open when you need it to.

you all who have opened doors for me - i thank you.


You cannot conceive the many without the one.

This place and the people within do have a way of gettin under ya skin and into ya head! (and HEART!) LOL

I too have many times had someone's post hit me square in the head and out pops a post of my own! I will typically "credit them" in the post for having hit me as they did and I have never had anyone complain

I loved your story! We are indeed only so sure and so safe... and decisions we make everyday strengthen or jeopardize that sureness and safety.. though I think we initially believe those decisions are positive.. unfortunately it isn't until later we determine the truth of that choice.

Nice little story full of insight. I never liked the scary stories because to me, as a young kid up to now, I felt I become a part of what I put in my head and it becomes a part of me. Later, Fritz Pearls came up with his famous quote, "Garbage in. Garbage out." I was interested in learning about girls and the mystery of their "pee-pee" hidden deep within. I'm still curious and I'm still learning.

"we have a peepee????"

That's all we knew to call it - on boys and girls. But I done learned better. Now I no hit's a poon tang!

"it was a family thing - scary stories, twilight zone, halloween, muahhahahaha"

Eeeeeeeee! I can hear the kids screaming now. Hmmmmmm...OK I can remember getting scared and liking it in Boy Scouts around the fire telling ghost stories. Never forget "The Cremation of Sam McGee." Oh yeah! the excitement of stealing apples and pears from this farmer who everybody knew had killed a bunch of kids with his shotgun.

oh god yes, Farmer Clemson - we used to steal his blackberries and run like hell at the slightest sound

i met him for real when i was 31 - just about the sweetest man i ever knew

I do believe life-altering epiphanies occur when you least expect them. I guess that's why they're called "epiphanies." Sounds as though the notion of "Blind Trust" did a 180 in your case. Way to manage your assets there, WE. You still maintain full discretion over them, but your beneficiaries know a little more about them. Beautiful post, WE!

wickedeasy replies on 8/8/2006 5:26 pm:
aww Frank - if i ever get as good as you, i'll stop and say - done


and Frank, handling assets is one of my better talents

WE....I loved this one. I was always the one telling my sisters the scary stories. But my imagination was so good.....that I would actually scare myself! lol Thanks for a great post, and one that brought back memories!

wickedeasy replies on 8/8/2006 5:27 pm:

wish i'd known you back then

i was the story teller and i tended to the gory - my sister would cry sometimes and say, "mibby stop, my heart hurts" - see, she really is a saint!!

I liked this blog WE. I certainly have no problem with you feeling inspired with anything I write. I think that's a high compliment and I think it adds dimension to anything I thought about. I learn alot from you. Will you come comment on my latest blog? I'd really like to hear what you have to say on the topic of trust...especially given this blog.

Yup...this juiciness is from me....

i thank you in return...and say a gracious anytime my friend...i have learned a lot from you. closets and boxes are certainly scary to me....there was one in my past used as punishment so quickly learned that i don't like dark places...and as an adult am a bit claustrophobic. Being let out of the dark in any circumstance/metaphor is a wonderful experience though...*hugs* tc

wickedeasy replies on 8/9/2006 2:59 pm:
i'm just glad to know you are happy Chelle

Great story and so easy to visualise. Certainly I got scared by scary stories as akid, but never was I locked in a cupboard by accident.

Like you I am enriched by the blogs of others, and am very often inspired to write one as a result, including the astrology one today. If I do draw in some way from someone else's blog I always like to give credit and acknowledge.

Blog on wicked, I enjoy your wonderfully insightful posts.
